ALMATY - Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev will delegate some of his sweeping powers to the Central Asian nation's parliament and cabinet, he said on Wednesday, a move which could facilitate eventual political transition.

In a televised address, the 76-year-old leader said parliament would form the cabinet which would in turn have more powers to manage the economy. The president's role will focus on strategic matters, foreign policy and national security.
