Prime Minister of Kazakhstan Danial Ahmedov on Monday resigned with his entire cabinet.
President Nursultan Nazarbayev has accepted Ahmedov's resignation and asked him to continue to perform his duties along with his cabinet until the appointment of a new government in the Central Asian nation, Russian agencies reported.
No reasons were given for the resignation by Ahmedov, who was appointed in 2003.
A new prime minister is expected to be nominated by President Nazarbayev on January 10 after consultations with the bicameral parliament.
Rich in minerals and hydrocarbons, Kazakhstan is one of the fastest growing economies in the post-Soviet space.
