Bulat Abilov (Template:Lang-kk) was the Deputy Chairman of the Otan political party in Kazakhstan. He achieved this position following the death of Parliamentary Speaker and Deputy Chairman Marat Ospanov.[1]

In 2011, as leader of the All National Democratic Party Azat, Abilov referred to as "a political game" a plan by President Nursultan Nazarbayev to sell to the public discounted shares of oil stock KazMunaigas Exploration and Development, the production subsidiary of KMG, Kazakhstan’s state oil company. Abilov said, "Rich people will buy the shares as usual, but ordinary Kazakhs will not participate."[2]
