Kazakhstan will hold a referendum on constitutional amendments on June 5, President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev said on Thursday.

After sidelining his predecessor and former patron Nursultan Nazarbayev amid violent unrest in January, Tokayev has proposed a broad constitutional reform that would strengthen the parliament's powers.
