Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev will make a televised address to the nation on Tuesday, his office said, amid speculation that the oil-exporting nation is headed towards an early presidential election.

Tokayev's office did not disclose the topic of his address scheduled for 13:00 local time (0700 GMT), but it will follow the interim president's meetings with senior officials and political party leaders to discuss the "domestic political agenda".
