President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan visited Muğla and Bodrum.
President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan criticized the municipality work of the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) on Friday, questioning if they have managed to achieve anything in all the years they have been holding the position.
“For years the CHP mentality has governed the Muğla municipality. What have they achieved?” Erdoğan asked during a rally for local elections in the southwestern Muğla province.
“Bodrum [a district of Muğla] has been suffering from floods. There is no infrastructure at all,” the president underlined as an example of the failure of CHP municipalities.
Muğla is known to be a CHP stronghold. In 2014 local elections, the CHP got almost 50 percent of the votes and won the province’s municipality.
He also reminded the audience that although providing drinking water is normally the duty of the municipalities, the CHP municipality did not do anything about it and AK Party has taken on the burden of the issue and is launching the Sandras drinking water project which will fulfill the water needs of the province until 2050. He added that they will bring natural gas to Milas, another district of Muğla.
