CHP mayors will be fair to all: Kılıçdaroğlu
The Republican People’s Party (CHP) mayors will behave fair to all segments of the society, leader of the party Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu said on March 1. He criticized negative rhetoric of the People’s Alliance against the opposition parties and their voters.
“We don’t make a difference as abasement or nation. We believe that is not a rightful style,” Kılıçdaroğlu said speaking in Uşak province.
The CHP leader was referring a rhetoric used by the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) and its election ally Nationalist Movement Party (MHP).
The AKP and MHP leaders pun the word “nation” of the “Nation Alliance” of the CHP and İyi (Good) Party to the word to “zillet” which means abasement.
The CHP’s mayors will act equal to all citizens whether they voted for their party and not, he said noting that sole positive discrimination should be displayed for the poor segments of the society.
If one is complaining about economic crisis in Turkey then those voters should vote using their minds and listen to their consciences in upcoming local elections, Kılıçdaroğlu said.
He criticized the queues in front of municipal vegetable sale stalls and said the government ruled for 17 years and at the end of the day they have forced the poor to get into those queues.
“Turkey possesses the potential to overcome this crisis,” he stated.
This issue has turned out to be a trans-political party matter, he said. Kılıçdaroğlu criticized sales of public assets and questioned the expenditures over the money gathered through these privatizations.
“This is a matter of Turkey. The core of democracy to go to the polls using mind,” he said.
