Amendments to the existing law on media are being eyed in Kazakhstan. The amended law is planned to be submitted to the Majilis, the lower chamber of the Kazakh Parliament, in 2023, Kazinform correspondent reports.
Justice Minister Kanat Mussin noted at the press conference at the Central Communications Service the new law will be amended in line with the vectors outlined by Head of State Kassym-Jomart Tokayev in his latest state-of-the-nation address.
Minister Mussin added that ‘it’s not an easy thing to do’ to draft a law that caters to the needs of both the society and journalists. «It will definitely take time [to develop one],» he added.
It bears to remind that President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev suggested revising the law on media on 16 March.
