Let them do it. But this is not the desert. This is Istanbul. The apple of the world. Since 1453, Fatih Sultan Mehmet has been entrusted to us since the day he conquered this city. We do not want to betray the trust.”

The way to do this is through common intelligence and experience. The most valuable stakeholders of this common mind are the 39 mayors of this city. We care about producing a business with a culture of working together without separating each other and we have taken serious steps in this regard. We visited the districts and received briefings. We have also set up working tables in the region. They are starting their meetings this month. The days are planned. Therefore, we will be in constant communication. It's his party, that's it, there's no such thing. Everyone selected for Istanbul has a place on our heads. ”
IMAMOGLU: OR We want to spread this justice to every point of the city ”
Emamoğlu emphasized that they will insist on producing a business together and said, bugün We continue our district meetings with Büyükçekmece today. Both Istanbul Hasan, one of the president of Turkey Akgun We're both experienced visit our Başkan'ı. Today, we will talk to them for a long time. Although it has established good dialogue with the Metropolitan Municipality for many years, I know the remaining parts of the city as a neighboring district. We intend both to make up for this and to talk and plan quickly what we can do for the coming years. In other words, in the last reports I received, Büyükçekmece, for example, was almost never present in the project execution of the Metropolitan Municipality. This is not a good thing. We want to spread this justice throughout the city. We're here for him. We will benefit from the experience and we will talk about Büyükçekmece for a long time. I
AKGÜN: “IMAMOGLU IS THE BIGGEST CHANCE IN ISTANBUL”
Akgün thanked İmamoğlu and his team for their visit and said, “We left behind a difficult 2019. We have left behind a 2019 that has passed into the history of Turkish democracy, where a lesson will be learned and lessons will be learned. Istanbul's greatest chance is to have a very dynamic, people-loving, intellectual metropolitan mayor. Dear Ekrem İmamoğluWe have full faith that 's will do very important works in Istanbul. God let him open the way. Whatever our strength and possibilities are, we will continue to stand by you until the end. Today we will talk about Büyükçekmece, not Istanbul. No matter how heavy the economic conditions are, we are determined and determined to find ways to solve the urgent problems of the citizens together. After the speeches, it was passed to the hall where the presentation of Büyükçekmece's problems will be held. IMM senior management was also present at the presentation, along with İmamoğlu.

MEET WITH CITIZENS IN THE COUNTRY COFFEE
Imamoglu stated that they had reserved the first working day of 2020 to the Municipality of Buyukcekmece and said: “Our President told us all the problems and requests of Buyukcekmece, all the things that could not be done by the Metropolitan Municipality for years. Celaliye has a special point for us. Kumburgaz Kamiloba, Türkoba, Tepecik… We talked about them all. The plan problem really hurts people really. Our president said that this problem has been exhausting people for years. We have also instructed our friends and they will bend over very quickly. Our beach is really beautiful. We want to pay special attention to the beach. Don't worry about this. He talked about the graveyard problem of the people who lived here. We will also focus on that issue hassas.
“BENEFIT FROM THIS BLESSING IS A SMART MANAGER JOB”
"We started a new process all together in Istanbul," said İmamoğlu, "Even there we have hundreds of nurses who can steer their minds with their minds. This is such a blessing. It is now the smart manager's job to take advantage of this blessing. We need to take advantage of this blessing. Otherwise it's not true. So think about it, a man came here. 'I know everything,' he says. Which of you would be happy. It does not value the ideas of any of you. While creating solutions for your problems, there is no solution by using your experience over the problems you experience every day. 'It is so, this is so ...' the judgment cuts. This is not true. It doesn't. It does not give peace. Oh, it helps you to do something wrong. So the idea of the people living here is the most valuable idea for us. This is the rings of local democracy. So I have to value my headman very much. In fact, I have to value my citizen through him. With this solidarity, where is the party? Party is over. This election is over. Now is the period of service. If a decision about Istanbul is to be taken, I am the mayor who has followed the trust with your vote, who follows the people what he thinks about what he feels about. ”
IM I'M NOT THE MAYOR OF THE MUNICIPALITY TO SATISFY THE EGOM ”
Imamoglu stated that it is imperative to get the opinion of citizens on any subject and stressed that this is not a blessing but an obligation. İmamoğlu continued his words as follows:
“Truly that is it. The other is wrong. Believe me, my advice to everyone, whether to the President or the Minister, is this: Is there an issue with Istanbul? call it. Look, we know the hierarchy. We'll go running. We try to solve that issue, that problem. Look, I'll give an example. During the election period, Mr. President said: 'I have solved the problems of Istanbul until 2040'. OK. We said, 'God bless you'. How happy. But we came once, it's not like that. We saw that Melen had stopped and was not walking. Broken dam. What did we do? We brought it out. We wrote to the State Hydraulic Works. We said, 'Do this.' DSI requested appropriation. We also declared that the allowance was not given. What did Mr. President do at the end of the day? The account asked, 'Why hasn't this finished?' he said. If we had not taken this problem from here and carried it up, if democracy had not worked, it would have stood there for months, it would not have worked. Because he didn't get paid. It stays that way for a year, it would stay for at least another year. Who will be the loser? There will be Istanbulites. Does it have a party? No. The problem begins when the party gets ahead of everything. Citizens will come first. Ekrem İmamoğluThe mayor today, not tomorrow. Another is in another position. Tomorrow there is someone else in his place. When you think like this and put the citizen first, the solution is very easy. We are here for that. This is how we deal with every problem of Istanbul. This is how we deal with every problem in the district, in the neighborhood, on the street. Every decision to be taken regarding the future of Istanbul, especially major decisions, cannot be made without the will of the citizens. It's that clear. Let's solve these things together. Let's sit at the same table, we don't need anything else. I say it again; Let's talk about which unit, which institution, which minister is at the top level of the state, including our President. Get their information, documents, people who know… We go running. We do this for this nation. We don't have any other problems. So I didn't become mayor to satisfy my ego. I didn't become the mayor to be nice to someone. The only person I will benefit from is the interests of 16 million Istanbulites. Point!"
“THIS IS NOT MY VOICE, IT IS THE VOICE OF 16 MILLION PEOPLE”
Imamoglu, then passed the cameras and answered questions from journalists. The questions asked by Imamoglu and the answers given by the IMM President were as follows:
“Lands sold around Kanal Istanbul are sold as agricultural land, but a new city is mentioned in the EIA report. It is also mentioned in the 1 / 100.000 plan. What do you say about the land sold in the current period? There is also a change in the municipal land registry systems. This system will be included in the web portal of the Ministry of Interior… ”
Once a mistake has begun, successive mistakes go like a domino. That's what's happening right now. I'm sorry. Mr. Minister, "There was no land movement," he said. We have identified up to 30 million square meters. When we explain it, it's a move to ban information sharing. Municipalities have been using them for years and sharing is beneficial. There are also in the district municipalities, there are also in the metropolitan municipality. Many bureaucratic processes work thanks to him. It doesn't sound like a mind. It all started wrong. Millions of square meters of land were purchased. The people who bought these plots bought them because they learned about the change here. 3-4 years in advance, even when returned to movies in Arab countries, Turkey, watched, watched ... It is the plan that has been offset by studies ... These are all sad. But let me give the good news: Hopefully this will be returned from the wrong. I hope that in these places where the agricultural land, these buying friends, contribute to the city agriculture. The people of Istanbul expect this from us. The people of Istanbul also want agriculture in these lands. He wants water basins to be protected in the same way. These purchasers, we have a good Department of Agriculture and Agricultural Policy Strengthening Center, can consult there already, “Which region, which product we can grow, danış they can consult. There is 5 floors, 10 floors, 70 floors building. I speak this because the Istanbulites do not want this. That's what I'm telling you, not because scientists tell me that this process is wrong. It's not my voice, it's the voice of 16 million people.
Z LISTENING TO THIS VOICE IS YOUR ZO-RUN-DA-SI N
“The referendum is closed by the ruling wing. Environment Minister, '2011, the people already made the choice. Those who asked the referendum had done what they asked by asking the public 'he said and pointed out that there is no need for a referendum. The EIA report underlined the need for a channel for Çanakkale. What do you think about this issue? ”
As I became mayor, we had the pleasure of asking the public and making decisions like that. The people living in Beylikdüzü even told me to build a Park Pati Park için for street animals or pets. We will build squares and ask all Istanbul. We will share a lot of things with the society until we get to the light. Which is important in the name of urbanism, but simple issues. Mr. Minister, this is the future of Istanbul. It's not right for you to talk to her like that, nor for me to say, 'I'm making a decision', or anyone else. It was about the system. He was elected President. True. Mr. President, we are our President. But he was also elected Mayor of Istanbul. In 2019, he was elected IMM President with the biggest vote in the history of Istanbul and I represent their voice. I say on behalf of them; this people are against this project. Listening to this sound is your zo-run-da-si. Rest is a lie. The voice of this people should rest. They have models. Call, let's come. Let's talk. Let's explain why. We have a workshop. I invite Mr. Minister. Here, come, tell; Why are you defending? Show me your visuals. Say, “Look,,“ We will do the following. We defend for him. In We said, “No, they shouldn't. Because they have these damages to Istanbul. We're going to do them instead. We will develop agricultural areas, protect green areas and SIT areas im. Let the people decide. I invite everyone responsible. I hope they come.
“THIS PLACE IS ISTANBUL. THE EYE BABY OF THE WORLD ”
As for the subject of Çanakkale. There are a lot of theses about this. The Montreux Treaty has details. Montreux Treaty, a treaty on the straits. It is not just a treaty defining the Bosphorus. The notion of Montreux is also valid for that place. Then how? Distressed work on all grounds. If they say: “We have found a land in the desert. There are 50 channels in the world, we will do the 51st. ”Here they do. But this isn't desert. This is Istanbul. The pupil of the world. Since 1453, Fatih Sultan Mehmet has conquered this city and entrusted us with it. We don't want to betray the trust.
“Mahir Ünal has criticized you, 'he speaks like a president. Istanbul is not Turkey's talking about the problem, 'he. 'The mind behind it,' he said. What would you like to say about it? ”
Behind me, 16 million people have their minds. I'm talking about the topics we're talking about right now. These are all very important issues about Istanbul one by one. But I understand that; unfortunately some friends in the AK Party, "I speak what I come forward," he is in a search. I suppose there's something to say about my name. I am the President of IMM. Have fun watching.
