Former Prime Minister of Kazakhstan, Akezhan Kazhygeldin, commented on the early presidential election.

Akezhan Kazhygeldin in his interview to "Nastoyashee Vremya" TV channel:

"The election is over and I am sure the second round will be held, because Amirzhan Kosanov is ahead of everyone, and I am convinced that we have the evidence. Tomorrow we'll know that Akorda will announce the second round or not, but we know that Amirzhan is ahead of everyone, so there should be second round".

In addition, it should be noted that according to the results of Exit poll, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev is ahead. He received 70.13% of the vote. Amirzhan Kosanov is second with 15.39% of votes. It is worth mentioning that Amirzhan Kossanov himself, the candidate for the presidency, said there would be "the second round". The exact outcome of the election will be known after a few hours.
