The commission includes members of the Majilis of the Parliament of the Republic of Kazakhstan, representatives of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, Association of Higher Education Institutions, National Chamber of Entrepreneurs "Atameken" and public figures.

Before considering the candidates, the Minister of Science and Higher Education Sayassat Nurbek familiarised the commission members with the new procedure for electing rectors. The regulatory document stipulates higher requirements for candidates. The main task is to raise the quality level of higher education institutions through effective management.

A candidate for rector should have a degree, work experience in senior positions in education and science for at least 5 years. Having academic titles (professor, associate professor) will be an advantage. This is only part of the main selection criteria.

At the meeting of the commission considered candidates for rectors of 3 universities. 

Rudnya Industrial University trains specialists in technical sciences and technologies. 4 candidates defended their projects on the development of the university. As a result, the majority of votes supported the candidature of Nurbek Saparkhodjaev.

Karaganda Industrial University also specialises in training technical personnel. Two candidates were proposed for the position of rector. They presented a 5-year development programme of the university. The majority of votes recognised Bakhyt Zhautikov's project as the best.

One of the oldest universities of the North Kazakhstan region is Manash Kozybaev University, which trains specialists in several directions. In particular, in humanitarian, technical, engineering and agricultural specialities. A branch of the US-based University of Arizona has recently opened here. Two candidates for rector presented their programmes for the development of the university. The members of the commission supported the candidature of Yerbol Isakaev by the majority of votes.

"Training specialists for the labour market of the country is a particularly responsible task. I believe that the citizens approved by the members of the commission and proposed for appointment will justify the trust," Tamara Duisenova said.
