IMM SözcüMurat Ongun pointed out that the statement of the ministry is against the law. “In the statement made by the Ministry of Transport, it is claimed that the IMM or its affiliates to participate in the tender will harm the competitive principle in the tender. Just the opposite; This explanation constitutes a violation of the 'openness and competition principles' of the tenders in article 2886 of the State Tender Law No. 2.
If our metropolitan municipality, which is a public legal entity and our subsidiaries subject to the provisions of the Turkish Commercial Code, meet the conditions specified in the tender specifications, there is no obstacle for them to enter the tender. The legal qualification achieved through the disclosure made is of a nature that only a judicial authority can reach and it is clearly unlawful to do so by the contracting authority. It is an unfortunate explanation that should not be made in a state of law, both in terms of procurement law and in general terms of law. What is the motivation of this statement is a matter of curiosity. ”
