Imangali Nurgaliuly Tasmagambetov (Kazakh: Иманғали Нұрғалиұлы Тасмағамбетов; Russian: Имангали Нургалиевич Тасмагамбетов [Imangali Nurgaliyevich Tasmagambetov]) (born 9 December 1956) is the current mayor of Astana, Kazakhstan. From December 2004 to April 2008 he was the mayor of Almaty. Before that, from 28 January 2002 to 11 June 2003, he was the Prime Minister of Kazakhstan.[1]

Tasmaghambetov said that he resigned after finding out about the falsification of a positive vote of confidence in his administration that was taken on 19 May 2003. His resignation resulted in the dismissal of all members of his cabinet, as required by the Constitution of Kazakhstan.[1]

Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev replaced Tasmaghambetov with Pavlodar Oblast Governor Daniyal Akhmetov on 13 June 2003. Akhmetov pledged to maintain many of Tasmaghambetov's policies.[1]
