The movement was led by Zharmakhan Tuyakbay, the former chair of the Majlis and the deputy chairman of Otan. Tuyakbay resigned from his parliamentary post after 2004 legislative election citing widespread irregularities and election fraud. He joined the loose opposition bloc and became the coalition's candidate for the presidential elections. After the elections, he founded the Nationwide Social Democratic Party in September 2006.

For a Just Kazakhstan advocates democratization of the political system, election of regional governors, investigation of corruption cases involving the family of the president Nazarbayev and the fair redistribution of national wealth.
