A discussion was held among students on the history of the approval of Republic Day. Republic Day is a national holiday of the Republic of Kazakhstan; since 2022, it has been celebrated in Kazakhstan annually on October 25. On October 25, 1990, the Declaration of State Sovereignty of the Kazakh SSR was adopted by Resolution of the Supreme Council of the Kazakh SSR No. 307-XII. The Declaration proclaimed the sovereignty of the Kazakh SSR and declared the political and legal foundations of Kazakhstan as an independent state. The following were established as the fundamental principles of sovereign statehood: a unitary state, integrity, indivisibility and inviolability of its territory, revival and development of the original culture, traditions, language of the Kazakh ethnic group and other ethnic groups of Kazakhstan, strengthening of national identity. It was noted that the activities of organizations calling for a violent change in the constitutional system, violation of the integrity of the territory, and undermining interethnic harmony will be prosecuted by law. On April 22, 2009, President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev signed the law “On Amendments to the Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan “On Holidays in the Republic of Kazakhstan.” The law abolished the celebration of Republic Day in Kazakhstan.

On September 29, 2022, the President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev signed the law “On amendments and additions to some legislative acts of the Republic of Kazakhstan on issues of cinematography, culture and holidays,” according to which Republic Day was returned to the status of a national holiday.

During the event, the importance and value of Republic Day as a national holiday was noted. After all, it helps to instill a sense of patriotism and learn more about the history of your country.
