Mayor of a municipality from 39 districts. Every institution of this country meets with each other and gives advice… Which is in an extraordinary situation. Look, I see this situation as a process of mobilization like War of Independence, and even beyond. We cannot sleep at night. Psychological Turkey as a whole, this process feel that way and live. We must be hand in hand, arm in arm. We should be able to meet at any moment. Whatever we are going to do, we have to put it on the field together. Many concepts of the world are changing. His political communication must change, his view of the economy must change, and all his vital mechanisms must change. These are spoken. It's that clear. In that respect, my desire, my desire; Of course, in such a painful situation, we have to unite and meet. We strive at a high level, make suggestions; a mayor sent such a message, supposedly found an opportunity, doing politics. What about the time of politics today, for God's sake? It's not the time of politics. For God's sake, is it time for Kanal Istanbul tender yesterday? Is it time to say 'I allocated 10 billion liras from this year's budget'? In such a critical process, you say 'I have allocated nearly 100 billion lira' ... A project that is not agreed yet. There is no social agreement. This is a project where the majority of people, 60-65 percent, are opposed. You will of course suspend such a thing. Of course, you will evaluate the process according to the conscience and priority of the society. ”
