Kazakhstan President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev has named Alikhan Smailov as the new prime minister of the country.

Kazakhstan’s lower house of parliament swiftly voted Alikhan Smailov on Tuesday during a session broadcast live on state television, reported Reuters.

Alikhan Smailov served as first deputy prime minister in the previous cabinet which Tokayev dismissed last week amid violent unrest in the oil-rich Central Asian nation.

Kazakh security forces have detained 9,900 people over the unrest, Kazakhstan’s interior ministry said on Tuesday.
