We will provide new resources and new opportunities. Because the people of the town can easily control all the expenditures made by the municipality. said.
The highlights of Kılıçdaroğlu’s speech are as follows:
“I HEART CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR PRESIDENT
We heard a very good presentation. A faithful and determined mayor. A mayor who considered it an honorable duty to be accountable to his people would have done so anyway. As I congratulate all our mayors, I heartily congratulate our Mayor of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality.
WE ARE COMMITTED TO MAKING TURKEY A BRIGHT STAR OF THE 21ST CENTURY
We set out on a road; for a bright, beautiful, fair Turkey. We said, ‘We will bring in an administration’. A government that is accountable to its people. We said, ‘We will bring an understanding’. We said, ‘We will bring the right of everyone who pays taxes to question the political authority’. So we said, ‘We will bring democracy’. We will have democracy in our country. Everyone will express their opinion freely. We said, ‘No one is going to think that their house will be raided at six in the morning’. If you will freely express your thoughts, you will do so without fear. Because we are determined to make Turkey a bright star of the 21st century. We will do it together.
WE KNOW THAT FEMALE MALE EQUALITY IS SUSPENDED
We said, ‘We will crown our republic with democracy’. We know that there is no democracy, that there is great pressure, we are aware of it. We know that gender equality has been suspended. We know that with a single signature, the will of the parliament was usurped and the Istanbul Convention was stopped. But no one has the right to despair. We will do all of these. Be sure. We are determined.
OUR GENERAL PRESIDENT GAVE US FEYZ, THEY SET BY EXAMPLES
We will fight, we are determined. We take our determination from Gazi Mustafa Kemal. We take our determination from our general presidents. Our presidents gave us inspiration and set an example. And we are walking the path they opened, we are walking together. Therefore, the duties of each of us are to enlighten the society, to focus on the problems of the society, to produce healthy solutions to each problem. We will do all of these.
OUR GOALS MAY BE DIFFERENT, BUT THERE ARE AREAS WE SHARE
Yes, we are together, we are together; yes, we are the Nation Alliance. We are together with the six leaders of the Nation Alliance. We are a separate party, it’s true. We have separate programs, it’s true. Our goals may be different, but we have areas in common. Democracy, justice, merit in the state, like politicians’ accountability to their people, equality between men and women, like a Turkey where no child goes to bed hungry; We are together in basic norms such as a respectable, honorable Turkey and a respectable foreign policy. We will do all of this together.
WE WILL BRING TURKEY TO THE ENLIGHTENMENT OR WE WILL
Makes publications from time to time; You know the media. Whatever they do, whatever they write – they may try to make something small – I want you to believe and trust us no matter what. We will continue on our way with determination and perseverance. We will either bring Turkey to the light or we will.
IN THE NATIONAL POWER WE WILL SET TARGETS
I know that there is great pressure in front of our mayors and their paths are cut off. I know that your hands and arms are meant to be tied. As a matter of fact, Mr. Ekrem just told me, partially. He told some of it. In the power of the people, we will set goals. We will create a healthy balance between central and local. We will strengthen the resources of local governments. We will provide new resources, new possibilities. Because the people of the town can easily control all the expenditures made by the municipality.
YOU TAX TAX
There is a parking problem. What do we do for; for vehicles. Who collects the tax on vehicles and motor vehicles? central government. The same central government looks back and says ‘why didn’t you fix the parking lot problem?’ You get the tax. What will we do? We will transfer vehicle tax and motor vehicle tax and similar taxes to local governments. And local governments will be stronger. When we look at all this, despite all the obstacles, our mayors continue on their way with determination. Some of its resolutions are not signed, yes. In a situation where even small children can say ‘no such thing happens’, big men are in search of ‘I wonder how we can tie the hands of the Istanbul Metropolitan Mayor, how we can bring them to the point where they cannot serve’. We have the determination to solve all problems, no matter what quest they are in, and we will solve all problems.
YOU WILL BUY MUHAMMED ALI CLAY’S FARM, KILIÇDAROĞLU WILL NOT SEE THEM; I WILL SEE
We will bring justice to this country first. I know how important justice is, and you do too. We walked together for justice. But justice is also the language of the state. The universe was built on justice. Then we will never forget those who did injustice while delivering justice. Those who usurp the rights of the people… I sometimes say ‘halalization’… Halalization is the one who holds the power to apologize to the person for the injustice done, and to say ‘we made a mistake here’. Otherwise, there is no concept that we will sit with those who despise the unfinished orphan, and we will say goodbye. We will definitely ask for his account. You will have your children establish foundations, play with millions of dollars, build skyscrapers in America, buy Muhammad Ali Clay’s farm, Kılıçdaroğlu will not see them. I will see, I will see; I will bring all of that money to Turkey and put it at the service of the people.
YOU WILL SEE AYINLIK TURKEY WHEN WE DESTROY THE POWER OF THE THRARISES
We will destroy this robbery, harami order. I am determined. Where there are thieves, there is no justice. Income distribution will not be balanced where there are thieves. Where there are thieves, the right of the people is eaten. Where there are thieves, there is no order in justice. Where there are thieves, thousands and millions of people go to bed hungry. Where there are thieves, anything happens. When we destroy the power of the thieves, you will see the bright Turkey, you will see the modern civilization. You will see how we are working to achieve that contemporary civilization. You will see how valuable the sweat of your forehead is.
WE ARE COMMITTED TO THE SIX LEADERS, WE WILL TEACH THEM ON JUSTICE AND BEAUTY AND EQUALITY OF FEMALE MEN
A farmer woman says, ‘We are no longer harmed, we are sunk.’ If a farmer woman has reached this point, those in Ankara should sit down and think, but they cannot think. They should fix the problems but they can’t. Because they cannot manage, they do not have the capacity to manage, knowledge to manage, knowledge to manage. Because they don’t know what merit is. Because they don’t know how the state is run. They do not know what justice is. But we are determined. All six leaders are determined, we will teach them justice, beauty and equality between women and men. We will show them how everyone’s beliefs, identities and lifestyles are respected. Don’t worry.
WE WILL BUILD A BEAUTIFUL TURKEY TOGETHER
Never forget, do not despair. Together, we will lead Turkey to the modern civilization envisaged by Gazi Mustafa Kemal and we will surpass it. And together we will fight, we will work. Without separating east, west, north, south; We will do it together, without separating the man from the woman, the old from the young. We will build beautiful Turkey together.”
