CHP Istanbul Provincial Head Cemal Canpolat, CHP Istanbul Deputy Barış Yarkadaş, CHP Ataşehir Municipality Head Hakkı Altınkaynak and Municipality Mayor Battal İlgezdi have visited Yeni Çamlıca neighborhood’s residents.

Canpolat and Battal İlgezdi stated that actions to fix these problems are being attended to and CHP is doing everything in its’ power to fix them as soon as possible.
CHP Istanbul Deputy Barış Yarkadaş who addressed the public during the meeting, has said “When all the powers are given to a single person, the frequency of arbitrary action increases. Even a simple problem cannot be solved.”
Yarkadaş, to the residents of the neighborhood, said:
“You are witnessing the inconveniency of all the powers being vested in a single person. The authority to solve such issues was taken away from the district municipality… If they would authorize our district municipality to solve these issues, they would immediately be resolved. Unfortunately, the authority is vested in a single person at the moment; meaning Kadir Topbaş. He on the other hand, is not doing anything to solve this problem. This is why we are objecting the one man regime.
Vote NO on the 16th of April, keep the Parliament alive, and we will draw all of these issues to the GNAT and solve them there.”
Additionally, the organizations in the neighborhood gave flowers to the CHP delegation. CHP members in return, thanked the leaders of those organizations.
