Stating that Turkey is approaching the election step by step, Babacan said, “Turkey is moving towards a moment of great decision. I travel every inch of Turkey. I look at the streets; The streets are looking forward to the ballot box day. The voice of the street says DEVA Party. That's why we have to work hard not to let this trust go to waste. It's almost time to ballot box. When that day comes, we have to work not to leave our troubled citizens, who entered the cabin to vote, debilitated. I announced two days ago, and I remind you again: DEVA Party will enter these elections with its own name, its own reputation, its own logo and emblem. Again, I wish you good luck.

Together we will take care of the boxes. We will fulfill our historical responsibility duly. After the elections, the whole world will talk about Turkey. After the elections, the whole world will talk about the DEVA Party. I hope Turkey's star will shine, it will shine. This hunger, this poverty, this injustice, this despair will end. All of Turkey will smile, my friends.”
İMAMOĞLU: "NO DEMOCRACY, NO POLITICIANS"
Emphasizing that Ramadan is a month of meeting and solidarity, İmamoğlu said, “It brings us together with our Lord and with each other. Arrogance and pride are the biggest obstacles to these meetings. Those who are enslaved by their egos and greed are imprisoned in an invisible prison that they have established themselves. Being human; To meet means to desire to meet. It means wanting to meet not only with those who are similar to us, but with everyone, no matter how different from us," he said. Emphasizing that politics should aim at social gathering, İmamoğlu said, “Public administrator; If it seeks the broadest common denominator of different minds, different hearts and different consciences, it is a real public administrator. While talking; We use concepts such as 'democratic politics', 'democratic administration'; actually, we are a bit of a waste of words, unfortunately. Because in today's world, if a politics or management style is not democratic, we cannot talk about politics or government. If there is no democracy, there is no real politician or manager," he said.
“MANAGEMENT WITHOUT DEMOCRACY IS BULLYING”
Saying, “Any kind of politics, any kind of administration that does not contain democracy in its essence, is an imposition, a tyranny after all,” İmamoğlu said:
“For those who want to turn Turkey into a bi-polar society, and those who engage in politics with segregation and hostility, we well know that the end of the road has been reached. We know that the good-hearted and pure-hearted people of this country no longer have a place for them in their consciences. The Republic has given us the opportunity to establish an equal and honorable common life in this country, as people of free thought and conscience. Unfortunately, there are those who abuse this opportunity. In the second century of the Republic, we will open a brand new page and we will establish a free and happy life together with our differences in this country. The most important development that gives us this hope is undoubtedly the fact that 6 political parties came together with the determination to move Turkey to a strengthened parliamentary system.”
TRANSMITTED THE SALT OF KILIÇDAROĞLU
Pointing out that the 6 political parties and their leaders, who act with the will to crown the Republic with democracy, bear a great responsibility, İmamoğlu said, “I would like to thank all the leaders who hope for our country by acting with this sense of responsibility, and especially Mr. Ali Babacan, who honored us here today, in the presence of all of you. Of course, I would like to convey my greetings to Mr. Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, who knew that I would be here tonight and when I called him and said, "I will attend the iftar tonight", he said, "Give my regards to the very precious Ali Babacan and to all DEVA Party members in his presence." I believe and I know that everything will be very good in Turkey. I believe and hope that this union of 6 political parties will open a very valuable page for us.” İmamoğlu also conveyed his thanks to DEVA Party Istanbul Provincial Chairman Erhan Erol, who hosted the fast-breaking fast. Erol, in his speech, celebrated the month of Ramadan and the upcoming Ramadan Feast of all participants.
