In the current Senate, according to the Constitution and the resolution of the Constitutional Council of the Republic of Kazakhstan of May 16, 1997 of N11/2 "About Official Interpretation of Items 3 and 5 of Article 52 of the Constitution of the Republic of Kazakhstan regarding Early Termination of Powers of Deputies of the Senate of Parliament", total number of deputies makes 42 deputies (39 deputies plus 3 deputies from five abolished areas; 2 deputies from the abolished areas stopped the powers according to Item 5 of article 52 of the Constitution).

For the Majilis the numerical structure is stipulated in Item 3 articles 50 of the Constitution of the republic in number of 77 deputies. Total number of deputies of the acting structure of the Majilis elected in December, 1995 according to Item 3 of article 50 of the Constitution of the republic in edition of August 30, 1995 shall be estimated proceeding from 67 deputy mandates.

Therefore, the concept "total number of deputies" of the Senate and Majilis of the operating Parliament is their constitutional chislosootvetstvenno 42 and 67.
