He was elected a candidate member of the Presidium (as the Politburo of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union was then called) on 14 February 1957 and served as a full member from 29 June 1957 until he was relieved of his duties on 16 November 1964, following the ousting of his mentor, Nikita Khrushchev a month earlier.
He was for many years thought to be Khrushchev's likely successor  but even before his mentor's removal from office, Kozlov's position had been undermined by the effects of his alcoholism; in 1963 he was replaced by Leonid Brezhnev as Secretary of the Communist Party Central Committee. At the time of his removal, Kozlov had already suffered a stroke and died two months later.
He was buried in the Kremlin Wall Necropolis.
