Public councils are created in Kazakhstan under the action plan “100 concrete steps” to implementation of five institutional reforms, announced by the Head of State. They are organized at the central and local levels, in order to express the views of civil society on matters of public concern. Recommendations of the Council are required for revision by the state authorities who make decisions.
Councils participate in the discussion of the budget programs, projects, strategic plans or programs for the development of territories, reports of the executive bodies on achievement of target indicators etc. It is planned that the legislative consolidation of the status and powers of the Public Councils will enhance the transparency of Government’s decision-making.
