The CEC has registered a total of 52 candidates (against 47 in 2005 and 50 in 2008). Most of the candidates come from the ruling Nur Otan party (28 people), with one candidate coming from each of Ak Zhol, Rukhaniyat and Auyl; 13 candidates do not belong to any particular party, with another 8 candidates choosing not to specify their party affiliation.
