national policies, administrative units, particular region, provinces, Kazakhstan

For purposes of local government, Kazakhstan is divided into 16 administrative units, or 15 provinces (in Kazakh, oblystar) and Almaty City. These units are administered by councils (maslikhat) that are directly elected for four-year terms. The president of the republic appoints the heads of the councils. The councils implement national policies on the local level and coordinate these policies with the individual needs of their particular region. The president is empowered to cancel or suspend the acts of the councils—a system that makes local governments directly subordinate to the president.
