The Constitution of the Republic of Kazakhstan is the basic law of our state, which has the highest legal force, direct effect and is applied throughout the territory of Kazakhstan. The Constitution is in the first place among the legislatively defined basic normative legal acts. The analysis of the norms of the Constitution of the Republic of Kazakhstan convinces that all its key provisions are directly related to anti-corruption issues. Corruption negatively affects the political and civil institutions of the State and poses a serious threat to the future development of the country. The Constitution should be considered as a program, the main legal mechanism, the basis for the fight against corruption.

August 25, 2023 at 15.00 in the regional universal library. N. V. Gogol held a round table "Constitution as a basic Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan", dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the first Constitution of the Republic of Kazakhstan (28.01.1993).
