KZ Parliament


The seat of Kazakhstan's bicameral parliament pays tribute to President Nazarbayev's quest of replacing old Soviet architecture with modern buildings, even if it was not – as many others – regarded worthy of being commissioned to a star architect. Nazarbayev was the country's leader prior to the fall of the Soviet Empire and is its first and only president since its independence in 1991. The lower house shares the right of legislative initiative with the government, but the president can veto legislation passed by parliament.
