Kazakh president names deputy chief of staff a Senate deputy

ALMATY, May 4 (Reuters) - Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev named his deputy chief of staff Maulen Ashimbayev a Senate deputy on Monday, replacing Dariga Nazarbayeva who has served as the speaker of the upper house.

The Senate is yet to elect a new speaker and Ashimbayev’s appointment could indicate that he is a candidate. (Reporting by Olzhas Auyezov, editing by Ed Osmond)
