We talked about how we should start in the coming months, we will focus on the problems of Istanbul, and how we can make joint moves. Frankly, we could not talk about the 45-50 day process. We will have additional talks about him. We visited our Governor in line with the state tradition and courtesy, and we talked about our expectations, their expectations and mostly what the Istanbulites want in the coming days. An efficient sohbet happened. I hope we will have good services to Istanbul with this cooperation. Because both institutions are state institutions. Our governor and we said that we would initiate a service mobilization with the institutions ”.

They had a meeting about this just Saturday morning and this issue has been fixed. Messages have been conveyed that the cards have been opened for use. It continues to be forwarded. We will not have a problem in this regard. We think there is only a technical problem. This instruction was not within my knowledge. Our friends are reviewing. "
- A PART OF NORMALIZATION-

It is true that Mr. President draws attention to this. However, this should change noticeably at all levels of the state. Nobody should pretend to be “as if”. We already have preparation. We determine the number of vehicles that we describe as protocol or authority vehicle. We will gather them all together. We will create a system in a way that will not disturb the citizen at the point of using this systematically. Besides, I said that we have works in terms of savings item in relation to surpluses. I wish this and other arrangements continue. This is part of normalization. ”
-WE WILL NOT SPEND THE MUNICIPALITY BUDGET WITH NO NEEDS-
President Imamoglu made the following statement about the posters hanging on bridges in some media organs:
“I think there were over 300 bridges and posters on some media like this. Of course, this is the beginning of a 5-year period. Especially after March 31, the first dimension of our question was to make some undeserved banners without right. Especially, the question of the municipality's management before the last election, while the election is going on, is to equip all sides with defensive posters, which was not the management of that period. Because Governor Bey was heading. It was not such a period. This is the part we are questioning. I think we are now announcing integration with the citizens with very innocent budgets. Of course, we will consider saving at every point. This is not a case to describe waste. After that, we will not spend the municipality's budget on such excesses or similar unnecessary announcements I have just described. Let me state this: I have seen how much the cultural and artistic life of Istanbul can grow with the expenditures of the municipality, especially in some items and the expenditures made under the title of art and culture. For this reason, no one should doubt that we will spend every penny, every lira of this city in favor of it, for whatever matter, for its benefit, interest and future. They really have valuable budgets in this sense. We will use those budgets in the most valuable way. No one should doubt that. ”

My friends prepared a precaution about this. I think information will be transferred during the day. I got some report, I will have an opportunity to review some of it soon. Therefore, we have taken our measures to ease our transportation axes, not the summer period, but the winter period. If there are lines that complain like this, we will also observe. We see that this summer will concentrate on the number of tourists. We expect much more than the figures for the past years. This summer and towards autumn. We will take the measures with my friends in order to avoid problems in the lines where tourists will concentrate in the summer. Today is my second working day. Still, it makes me happy to face such responsibility questions. ”
Following his resignation with the Secretary General of IMM and his deputies, President İmamoğlu answered a question about whether or not a meeting was held:
“We had contact. I invited you today. They turned back that some of them had permission and should be out of the city. Otherwise, I would have a meeting with them during these hours. I guess that all or most of them are not here. We made our invitation. They have the right to obtain permission. I can't say anything to him. There are also those who resigned. After that, we will take care of our business. We have shown our kindness and our effort to establish a dialogue. Our friends have already met, they will continue their negotiations. The institution's memory is here. We will keep it. We will make the internal memory valuable at the highest level. No one should doubt that. It is intended to be on the board of directors related to affiliates. Of course we have innovative management staff. There are also people we will evaluate from the current staff. Therefore, my friends are continuing to work on both the general assembly calls and the changes in the management there. Some of the comments are made as soon as there is a problem with the circular. Our lawyer friends are on the line. I don't think we will have a problem. Because we act in accordance with the law and at that point, we are thinking of making a giant leap forward in our affiliates with innovative, expert and qualified people. There are very serious ideas that increase both transparency and revenues and create new revenues in a very serious way by using the talents that some of our affiliates have never used before. We will implement all of these. Turkey will achieve the largest gains are aware that we have subsidiaries. We have a staff ready to use our advantages in favor of our citizens. I expect them to start quickly. ”
