İMAMOĞLU: "A SOLO DECISION MECHANISM WILL DROUGH IN WRONG"
Stating that he has visited all political party presidencies in Istanbul since the day he took office, İmamoğlu said, “With this understanding, political parties are a completely important dynamic, and with this concept, every ruler should benefit from political mechanisms at an equal distance and should prepare the ground for this. I am the president, ”he said. Stating that he always benefited from political meetings during the district mayor's term, İmamoğlu noted that he continued the same experiences in the IMM Directorate. Underlining that Istanbul is for everyone, İmamoğlu drew attention to the fact that their aim is to benefit from the experiences of 16 million people of the city. Saying, “Whoever establishes a decision and management mechanism alone in Istanbul, will only be drowned in mistakes,” said İmamoğlu. If you are a manager, you manage this city with the least error and the highest accuracy. "This is the way we walk," he said.
"THE IDEA OF ESTABLISHING COMMISSIONS IS POSITIVE"
Stating that the Future Party Istanbul Provincial Presidency approves the idea of establishing a commission that will closely follow IMM, Imamoglu said, “Such an academic and professional view of the process is a view that contributes to us in terms of the way a political party works.

Emphasizing that they have to be involved in informing the public in this sense, İmamoğlu noted that they encountered many obstacles in the process.
"NET DEFINITION: CONCRETE CHANNEL"
“Its definition is clear with us: This is a Concrete Channel. It means nothing else. The cost of this project is very high, ”said İmamoğlu,“ The cost of this project, which they advertise as '65 billion dollars investment' in the promotional advertisements including the institutions of our country, is financially heavy. But believe me, there is no recipe or repair of its price spiritually. Therefore, it must be prevented. We will be in a great struggle on this issue, ”he said. Stating that the country is currently struggling with problems such as economic problems and unemployment, İmamoğlu emphasized that saying “We will do it out of spite” for such a project should be questioned psychologically by the society. Saying "I will go further", İmamoğlu said:
“While there was a solution to an earthquake process that threatened our lives in Istanbul, we activated 8 of them when we took over this city - there were 8 stopped metro lines, while there was a management that could not spare 1 penny and followed the stopped lines for 2 years ( These are the lines that we started with different financial capabilities after arriving), while there are solutions to many problems from transportation to earthquake, we should question the understanding of this city of saying 'I will build the channel out of spite' with an investment of 65 billion dollars.
