Former National Bank Head can’t lead Temirbank Yet

    The former Chairman of the National Bank Anvar Saidenov in an interview with a KazTAG correspondent said that he would not become chairman of Temirbank because of legal restrictions.
     “Kazakhstan’s legislation does not allow me to work in the private sector within one year from being released from a public service position,” he said.
    As was reported previously, Saidenov was recently relieved of his job as National Bank chairman by presidential decree.
     Since Temirbank will possibly be placed under the 51% ownership of the Samruk-Kazyna Sovereign Wealth Fund in the near future, it could be considered t a partially stated-owned entity. When questioned by reporters, Saidenov said he did not know whether he would be eligible to lead the bank in this case, according to KazTag
