Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan seems to have no intention of taking even a brief break from his busy schedule during the ongoing Ramadan month.

In the first few days of Ramadan, Erdoğan attended iftars (fast breaking dinners) hosted in Ankara by the Civil Servants’ Trade Union (Memur-Sen) and hosted by the Independent Industrialists’ and Businessmen’s Association’s (MÜSİAD).

As of July 12, he landed in the southeastern Anatolian province of Bingöl where he was set to open Bingöl Airport and later join an iftar along with representatives of civil society organizations (CSOs), opinion leaders and citizens before flying back to Istanbul on the same day.

On July 19, Erdoğan will be in the eastern Black Sea province of Kastamonu in order to open the Kastamonu Airport for service, the construction of which was completed in 1959 but which has remained inoperative due to a lack of passengers. Its renovation was started in 2010.

This weekend, Erdoğan will gather with citizens at separate iftars to be hosted by the Birlik Foundation and the Ensar Foundation in Istanbul. As of July 15, he will be assembling with members of his party’s Central Executive Board (MYK) and Central Decision and Executive Council (MKYK) and their families.

Erdoğan may also attend the opening of Sırnak Airport which will take place on July 26.
