Although the presidency was established with very good intentions, unfortunately, over time, the personnel working in the area exceeded their competencies and entered into a number of applications, Telecommunication Communication Presidency weakened and worn out.
As the government, we believe that the Telecommunications Communication Presidency must be restructured. Within this framework, we have completed our work. I hope we will talk and discuss these studies in the Council of Ministers in a short time. We will be taking a step towards the restructuring of TİB.
- We believe that the Telecommunications Communication Presidency should be removed from the existing building and transferred to a different place. Because we don't really know what was done there.
- Some of the mines are closed. We have sisters who are unemployed. We have brothers who work in the mine and are unemployed. We will pay these brothers a law, but we provide financial support for the elimination of the problems of this legal process.
