Kazakhstan president rejects parliamentary republic switch

VYACHESLAV OSELEDKO / AFP

Kazakhstan is not going to become a parliamentary republic anytime soon.

It comes after the country's president rejected calls for a switch on Friday. 

However Kassym-Jomart Tokayev has vowed to give the nation's parliament a bigger role in decision making. 

Critics say Kazakhstan's political system is highly centralized with too much power in the hands of the president.
