Notably, the Constitutional Court is accessible to every citizen, not just governmental entities, as was the case before.

The judges of the Constitutional Court have already reviewed 23 cases over the past eight months, and approximately 20 cases are currently being assessed.

This demonstrates not only an individual's ability to protect his or her personal rights but also contributes to the collective rule of law. By applying to the Constitutional Court, a citizen makes his or her own civic contribution to strengthening the rule of law.

As a result of assessing citizens' appeals, the Court has scrutinized over 30 legal norms. Five of them were deemed unconstitutional, while 11 were found to be in accordance with the Constitution.

Most cases pertained to criminal procedural legislation, administrative offenses, the judicial system, and Supreme Court rulings.

Ultimately, promoting the rule of law and safeguarding human rights should remain at the core of any efforts toward conflict resolution, peace, and security.

Kazakhstan has undergone remarkable political transformations as a result of constitutional reform, which received the backing of over 77 percent of eligible voters in the referendum.

The ongoing reforms in various sectors reflect a deep commitment to building an inclusive and transparent political system rooted in democratic values and the well-being of its citizens.

These reforms aim to actively engage the populace in political life, thereby ensuring stability and economic development.
