In his address, the President recalled that the Majilis has bills related to the electric power industry and instructed the deputy corps to promptly consider and adopt appropriate legislative changes.

It should be noted that on March 16, 2023, two bills were adopted at the Plenary session of the Senate of the Parliament of the Republic of Kazakhstan:
