General characteristics of norms of common law
The current Constitution of the Republic of Kazakhstan, as noted, was adopted by referendum on 30 August 1995 and came into force from the day of official publication of results of the referendum on 8 September of the same year. The current Constitution published October 8, 1998.
The Constitution consists of a preamble and 9 sections, uniting 98 articles. The preamble of the Constitution States:
"We are the people of Kazakhstan,
United by a common historic fate,
Creating a state on the indigenous Kazakh land,
Knowing yourself peaceful civil society, committed to the ideals of freedom, equality and Concord,
Wishing to take a worthy place in the global community,
Realizing our high responsibility before the present and future generations,
on the basis of their sovereign rights,
accept this Constitution".
Section I of the Constitution, “General provisions” contains the fundamental principles that serve as the legal basis of the constitutional system - characteristics of the organization, internal and external policy of the state, the legal system, institutions of civil society.
In section II's “Man and the citizen”, with 30 articles, we see an extensive list of rights and freedoms and duties of man and citizen, including some procedural guarantees of rights and freedoms.
In the seven following sections, govern the basis of the status of national authorities, which in comparison with the previous Constitution has undergone significant changes, including a different name. We are talking about the President, the Parliament, which is bicameral now, about the Government, the constitutional Council and the courts, and justice-related institutions (public Prosecutor's office, the investigation agencies and others).
Local public administration and self-government is regulated in sec. VIII, the content of which still bears the imprint of Soviet views on the organization of state power. Read more we will show below in §6 of this Chapter.
Finally, in section IX “Final and transitional provisions” in addition to the provisions of title section provides the procedure for amending the Constitution. According to Art. 91 amendments to the Constitution may be amended by national referendum, which the President of the Republic shall appoint, on its own initiative or on the proposal of the Parliament or the Government. However, the President may transmit the draft amendments to the Constitution in Parliament, who shall make the decision in the manner prescribed by the Constitution, that is, at a joint session of the chambers and by a majority of not less than 3/4 of the votes of the total number of deputies of each chamber. Unlike the Supreme Council of the 1993 Constitution, the Parliament has now exceptional constituent power.
The constitutional reform of 1998 were slightly extended the powers of Parliament on the issue of amending the Constitution. Under the new provisions, if the President rejects the proposal of the Parliament on referenda of the draft amendments to the Constitution, Parliament may enact by a majority of 4/5 of votes from total number of deputies of each chamber. In this case, the President signs the law, or by taking it to a referendum, for the validity of which requires the participation of the majority of citizens eligible to participate in the national referendum. Changes and additions to the Constitution shall be deemed accepted, if they voted more than half of the participants of the referendum.
Not be able to change the provisions of the Constitution of a unitary character and territorial integrity of the state, and the presidential form of government of the Republic.
Law in force in the Republic of Kazakhstan, as specified in 4 tbsp. of the Constitution, are constitutional provisions, related laws, other normative legal acts, treaties and other international obligations of the Republic, as well as regulatory decisions of the constitutional Council and the Supreme court of the Republic. International treaties ratified by the Republic shall have priority over laws and be directly implemented except in cases when an international Treaty, it follows that its use requires the enactment of a law. All laws, international treaties to which Kazakhstan is published. The official publication of normative legal acts concerning the rights, freedoms and duties of citizens, there is a mandatory condition of their application.
The Constitution has Supreme legal force and direct effect on the entire territory of the Republic. This means that the activities of all state and public bodies, physical, legal and officials must comply with its standards and all regulatory legal acts may not be in conflict with its provisions. Direct action of the Constitution means the right of a person to refer directly to its norms in the protection and realization of their interests and the duty of any law enforcement official to follow in the first place its standards.
Seems a good constitutional formula including 4 senior 3, according to which "the state power in the Republic of uniform, carried out on the basis of the Constitution and laws in accordance with the principle of its division into legislative, Executive and judicial branches, and interaction with each other using a system of checks and balances. It allows, first, to emphasize the unity of state power in General, and secondly, coupling it by the Constitution and the law and, thirdly, the implementation of it on the basis of the principle of separation of powers, with the cooperation of authorities among themselves using a system of checks and balances.
Strengthening of the state power in “Kasymkhan`s Laws”
The rise of the Kazakh khanate, associated with the name Kasim - son of Djanibek-one of the most prominent Kazakh khans, which quickly was the process of "collecting land". Kasim was born about 1445:- in the autumn of 1513, when on shore R. Chu has been a meeting between Kasim and Chagataides Saeed Khan, according to their contemporary of Mirza Haidar Dulati, "the age of Kasim Khan exceeded sixty years and was close to seventy". His mother named Jagan-Begim had a sister of the mother of Sultan Mahmud, the brother of Sheybani Khan. As a true son of the steppes, Holy worshipped the time-honoured tradition of subordination to the senior, Kasim Sultan, the example of his father, was at first everything is docile and obedient Chipmunk Khan, says Mirza Haydar.
The result is a steady, good relations with the rulers of Moghulistan Kassym managed to include in his khanate main areas of the seven rivers. Expanded its territorial possessions in the West. Nogai Horde was experiencing at the time of severe crisis, some of the clans and tribes had migrated under the authority of the Kazakh khans and sultans.
Thus, Kasym Khan finally approved its dominance over the vast steppe areas of the Kazakh territory. The borders of the khanate in the South were on the coast of the Syr Darya and included a large part of Turkestan, South-East, they covered the foothills and valleys of a significant part of the seven rivers, in the North and North-East took place in the region of the Ulutau mountains and lake Balkhash, reaching the Karkaraly mountains, in the North-West reached the river basin Zhaiyk. During Kasim Kazakhstan's population has reached nearly one million, and the number of troops up to 300 thousand.
"Kasim Khan became a complete master of all the Desht-and-Kipchak, gained such fame and power which no one had after Jochi Khan," - wrote the famous historian Mohammed Khaidar Dulati. Kasim became known as a skilful diplomat. He established diplomatic ties with the Nogays, the Mongols, Kashgaria and skillfully used his connections with them in the fight against Shaybanids.
The Kazakh khanate when Kasim Khan was gradually drawn into international relations. One of the first States, which entered into diplomatic relations with the Kazakh khanate was Muscovy during the reign of Grand Prince Vasily III (1505-1533). The history of the Kazakh khanate during the reign of Kasym Khan is notable for the fact that in those years the Kazakhs as a separate ethnic community became known in Western Europe: the Kazakhs have left their records Australian diplomat Sigismund Herberstein, who visited several times Moscow ( in 1517 and 1526 gg).
Kasim Khan, according to contemporaries - Binai, Ibn Ruzbikhan, Babur, Changamire, Mirza Haidar, was always fond of good horses, was a great scholar, a distinguished military talent, personal courage and ability to lead others; on the basis of their statements creates the image of a man with high moral qualities worthy of emulation.
Kasim Khan was noticed that the recent increase in inter-clan strife. Some districts have stopped to consider others on the grounds that their khans and beks more noble noble. Small friction often escalated into a big scandal. It was noticeable that inflate strife sultans and bija. Solutions Biy was not always performed.
"If this continues to be so, thought of Kasym Khan of the Kazakhs will suffer the same fate mongols and Shaybanids, which had separated, crumbled bit by bit".
And Kasim Khan decided to make a law requiring people iron discipline. This law was approved and promulgated. The law consists of five chapters. In the first Chapter (Property law) discusses the problem of litigation, land, clan, family relations, as well as payment of a ransom and taxation. In the second Chapter - defined sentences for specific crimes. (Criminal law). In the third Chapter highlights the issues of military service and discipline. Any violation is punishable mandatory depending on the severity of the crime. (Military law). The fourth Chapter is devoted to the questions of the diplomatic service and its ethics.(Ambassadorial law - custom). In the fifth speaks of the celebrations, funerals, funeral, etc. (The law of society).
It was the first law in the history of the Kazakhs, based on folk traditions and folk wisdom. This law is a testimony to the justice and therefore is called "the noble way of Kasym Khan".
The property and non-property relations under “Esimkhans`s Laws”
Esim Khan had to endure even more severe political struggle, the outcome of which was a radical reform of the political system of the Kazakh state. The essence of it was that the primacy of closed elite - Torah was replaced by the primacy of elite open-type - Biy and officers. It happened a kind of Biysk revolution, which limited the political rights of mongols and installed a wide rights to communities and their leaders.
Legally these changes were enshrined in a code of laws - «Есім ханны? ескі жолы»- adopted as a Supplement to the code of Kasim Khan. The law has received wide recognition among people, where norms of Adat were more acceptable than Sharia law into force of animal husbandry. This legal act was defined powers Khan, biys and warriors, and their mutual obligations and rights, in fact it was "Biysk revolution" - as Khan was restricted to the aristocracy and relied on Biy (steppe judges).
Still the Supreme legislative power remained Maslihat. Part of it was composed of all representatives of the Kazakh communities and only the most powerful sultans. Maslihat gathered once a year, mostly in the fall in Ulytau,, Turkestan or near Tashkent.
The weakening of the role of Khan in the political system led to a change in the principle of choice Khan. Although officially the principle of meritocracy remained in force, in fact, the Kazakhs moved to the inheritance of the Royal title until the beginning of the XVIII century Instead ulus system in the early seventeenth century was introduced Ruzova organization, when all Kazakh lands were divided between the three economic - territorial organizations - zhuzes. At the head of the hordes stood bija, the leaders of the most powerful and numerous community groups. Essentially all power was in the hands of rusovich Biy. They were formed and the Council Biy, limited the power of the Khan. Power Biy kept exclusively on the personal authority and Khan, depended on them, could not influence the nomination or another beating.
“Gengis Khan`s Yasa”- a source of a common Law
The great Yasa of Genghis Khan (Yas - Turkic form the Mongolian jasak, literally " law"), the code of regulations promulgated by Genghis Khan in the election of the great Khan on the Kurultai in 1206. Originally represented a codification of the unwritten Mongol customary law and contained mainly the list of punishments for serious crimes.

Known only fragments of it in the transfer of Persian, Arabic and Armenian authors of the 13th century.
Structure of Yasa can be divided into five departments:
1) crimes punishable by death

Features of the religious right(Sharia) in Kazakhs
The history of our country for many centuries firmly connected with Islam.
Islam has become one of the main sources of formation of distinctive spirituality and culture of the Kazakh people.
The ancient Turks, the ancestors of the Kazakhs, were directly involved in the formation of Islamic civilization and was involved in many of its victories.
The position of Islam was established after the adoption of Islam in the Golden Horde under Khan Berke (1255-1266,) and acceptance of his subsequent khans (Modeming, Uzbek). For example, under Khan Uzbek (1312-1342,) in the Golden Horde capital city Barn, functioned 13 mosques.
Religion has become one of the tools to ensure the unity of society.
Conducted targeted appeals to Islam among the nomads. The preachers were in the steppes of the Volga region and Central Asia, from different parts of the Muslim world.
Among the missionaries there were many representatives of the Sufi clergy. The order of the Naqshbandiyya and yasaviya had great influence on the government and the public consciousness. Under the control of the Sufi communities were mosques, madrassas, without their participation was not voluntary and private ceremony.
A feature of the spread of Islam among the nomadic tribes of Kazakhstan was the fact that the Muslim creed is easily adapted to national traditions and customs of the Kazakh people.
With the formation of the Kazakh nation in the XV century, the introduction of Islam contributed to the strengthening of the Supreme authority of the khans and consolidation of the Kazakh tribes into a single ethnic community.
Residents of the Kazakh khanate adhered to Sunni Islam of the Hanafi mazhab, but in public and private life was a kind of synthesis of Islam with elements of Tengrism, and shamanism.
Kazakh statehood from its inception was based on Muslim law.
Their commitment to Sharia claimed all of the Kazakh khans from Kerey and Zhanibek until the last obshchesibirskogo Khan Kenesary.
Significant influence Islam had on codes steppe of state law adopted by Kasim Khan and Esim Khan.
A significant step towards the introduction of Islam in public life and the practice of law was the code of laws "Zheti Zhargy", approved by the Khan Tauke.
Standards of administrative, criminal and civil rights set forth in this document, was based largely on the provisions of the Sharia. In particular, the laws "Zheti Zhargy" acknowledged the support of the state of the Muslim religion. It is proved by the following provisions: "a Blasphemer, convicted of seven witnesses, shall be put to death with stones..."; "If those who accept the Christian faith, the family is robbed of all his possessions"; "Spiritual Testament made by relatives and the mullahs".
“ Taukekhan`s Zheti-Zhargy”- a source of the code of law”
Normal (the Torah, the ADAT) and Islamic law (Sharia) regulate the legal relationship in society. Attempts to develop a unified legal framework were taken by Kasym and Eskom. But the greatest success in this area has reached Khan Tauke (1680 - gg.), considered to be the author and initiator of drafting and adopting "Jeti-Zhargy".
The exact time of the adoption of these laws is unknown. Consider that at the end of the XVII century, Tauke convened outstanding Biy three hordes (Tole - from Older; Kazybek - Middle; Aiteke - from the Younger), it was they who were the authors of "7 codes".
Why is there a need for the adoption of these laws?
1. With the aim of strengthening the political unity of the Kazakhs, the creation of the Kazakh centralized state. (as you know, unity was necessary in the face of evolving Junggar danger).
2. To develop a common legal framework of the Kazakh society, meets the requirements of time. "Jeti-Zhargy" preserved in the records (not fully - preserved 33 fragment) Russian scientists, the Saviour (1820 ), A. Levshin.
In its structure "Jeti-Zhargy" consists of rules of administrative, criminal, civil law, family and matrimonial relations; sections on taxes, religion, etc. the Basic principles, based on which Tauke wanted to unite the Kazakhs were strict subordination of Junior senior (children - parents, wife, husband; subordinate ruler); the principle of collective responsibility (person in front of genus, the genus for each member). Criminal penalties were based on the principle of Talion (blood for blood), but the death penalty (4) can always be replaced by ransom (kun). "Jeti-Zhargy" reflects the socio-political heterogeneity of the society, talking about articles about different degrees of responsibility of the ruling parties and ordinary people. law yasa sharia kazakh
The bulk of the population was free entity. Only slaves were personal dependence on their owners and could be deprived of life, they usmotreniye Zhargy included the following main sections:
