The problem in turkish politics is and has always been people not being able to praise and criticize the governments. IMO this trait has become worse during AKP time.
But this trait can only be cured through ensuring people get proper unbiased news. The mainstream media isn't unbiased unfortunately.
There are nice words that can be favored by people but the notions behind those words can be manipulated and used by ill intended outsiders towards weakening the nation's interests. Good thing the nation can tell what is good and what is bad for the national interest when the going gets tough. This happened before when a coalition government prospect loomed on the horizon after which a new election resulted is a stronger single party government.
Transparency shouldn't mean spilling national intelligence secrets for all eyes to see.
Unbiased press happens when you stop foreign capital from owning national media. Social media included.
Justice is justice when you uphold it.
I don't know what it is.articles in DS
I don't know what it is.
Turkish constructors have been second after China in the global market for many years.
I should say that not every situation that will arise is foreseeable and there has to be some flexibility to enable projects to move forward.
People don't want to be presented with excuses, they want to see the results and achievements. You can get things done by pushing costactors as well as pulling them. Minor differences between plans and realizations are always acceptable.
I don't know what percentage of construction projects goes to pro Akparti businessmen but it is understandable that they feel that they will be treated reasonably when they get the tender and that's why feel attracted to participate. The fact that many projects go to that way does not automatically mean they are being favored. If there is anything unlawful it should be brought up with evidence both to court and to the GNA.majority of construction projects, which btw goes to pro AKP favourite friends entrepreneur firms
In the latter case delivery of Altay has been delayed for years, BMC has been dragging feet finally that SSB had to lease Tank Palet at their service, they neither started construction of the Factory they promised, neither started upgrades at Tank Palet, again as they promised. They finally started not actual serial production, of some Tanks for sole reasons of receiving payments.Also from the Altay tender we have seen that opposition side only want money with a €17mn price tag per piece when the pros act with national interest as well in mind asking €7,5mn only and giving a priceless tank engine too in the process. Which is a no-brainer.
Erdoğan always asks for a discount and this makes projects less attractive for those who does not wish to be supporting the government doing the work economically. Tell me if I am wrong.
To avoid Kayyum, yes. I still don't understand how Ülker can stick around with their low quality products. They have purchased Godiva, United Biscuits, yet their products in Turkey sucks.DS = Daily Sabah (Pro AKP newspaper)
Yes, critical projects can be pushed through without proper tender process. There is room for this in the law. But the moment you use that particular piece of the law to make a majority of construction projects, which btw goes to pro AKP favourite friends entrepreneur firms.
Then that is a blatant abuse of law.
During crises trust in the government is important.......
