Though the parliament remains closed for the summer recess, deputies have been busy campaigning in the districts and are expected to accelerate their campaigns until October 1. With the end of the Eid holidays, politicians are again in the field meeting face to face with citizens.
At the last group meeting before Parliament went into recess, President and AK Party Chairman Recep Tayyip Erdogan requested that AK Party deputies visit electoral districts in the summer months to mobilize the party organizations and reach citizens from all walks of life. All of the AK Party’s organizations, from the party administration to its women and youth branches, will be in the field together with deputies. Problems will be determined one by one in all 81 provinces and the requests and complaints of citizens will be noted, determinations will be set on a provincial basis, and they will be put into a report. In particular, problems faced by tradespeople and SMEs related to the pandemic and steps to be taken for the upcoming period will be discussed at meetings to be held with businesspeople and economists, non-governmental organizations, and chambers of commerce. The necessary steps will be taken after the reports are prepared.
The Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) Leader, Devlet Bahceli, who said that there is no holiday in politics, requested deputies to reach every citizen in electoral districts.
