The purpose of the article is to study the topic problem of the power political transit. The main components of the neopatrimonial regime are highlighted, the analysis of some legislative acts and initiatives of the President, as well as the Dossier on the draft Constitutional Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan “On introducing amendments and additions to some constitutional laws of the Republic of Kazakhstan”. As a result of which, by comparing the main components of the neopatrimonial regime on the one hand, and the legislative initiatives of the President on the other hand, the basis for the rejection of neopatrimonial practices in Kazakhstan was revealed. The conditions for the transformation of its post-crisis democratic development are formulated and substantiated. This article is a continuation of the previous research devoted to the analysis of political transformations in the transitional period of the Republic of Kazakhstan (Voprosy politologii. 2022. Vol. 12. № 2 (78)), in which, within the framework of the transformation theory of political regimes the process of neopatrimonial regime transition to democracy is considered.
