The Committee to Protect Journalists welcomes President's decision to veto a controversial media bill

The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) welcomes President Nursultan Nazarbayev's decision to veto a controversial media bill passed by both chambers of Kazakhstan's Parliament earlier this year.
The Constitutional Council, whose members are appointed by Nazarbayev, assesses pending laws for their accordance with Kazakhstan's Constitution.

Local and international media organizations, including CPJ, had widely criticized the bill for giving the government broad authority to interfere in media operations. (For more information, click here:
