Istanbul's mayor going on a begging tour

In Berlin, he was in Copenhagen. In Paris, he has embraced the mayor, in London pensive looked on the Thames. Many in Istanbul have wondered, what is it that drives your mayor is so far away from home. Some have blasphemed, that Ekrem imamoğlu travels through half the world, instead of sitting in his town hall. Now we all know: the mayor imamoğlu was on a begging tour.

The mega-metropolis on the Bosporus in urgent need of money. The Turkish state-owned banks, but want to give her any more credit, since in June, the opposition politicians, the office of the mayor has conquered – after a quarter of a century of domination of the Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his party friends. "Unfortunately, the doors of the state banks are completely closed," said imamoğlu now. Not even for "daily routine needs," the administration give it credit. "Sad" is imamoğlu the. Therefore, he sought sources of money abroad. With Success. A loan of 110 million euros, the Deutsche Bank also gave to the French Institute were in the cafeteria.

What has not tried Goliath everything to stop this, David: Twice was elected in Istanbul, twice imamoğlu has won.

Thus, two U-Bahn to be built-lines, on the Asian side of Istanbul. The projects had already been before the local election stopped, because of the Turkish financial crisis. With a ceremony the restart was celebrated. This is now again some not legal. "There are in Turkey because no banks?", tweeted one of the critics of the Ob, another snapped the mayor: "What you have given to them, in order to grant you credit?"

That was the wrong question, because imamoğlu has only told his story, which is kind of a fairy tale. From the unknown province of politicians, the mess with the most powerful man in the country, and at the end of the largest of trophy wins, in Turkey – to the President. And what Goliath didn't try anything to stop this, David: Twice was elected in Istanbul, twice imamoğlu has won. When Erdogan invited to the municipal election, the new mayor in his Palace, broke all the chair, who had been assigned to imamoğlu,. Coincidence?

government money

The mayor needs was also excluded from a Commission to seek solutions for local problems. The Head of his secular party, the CHP in Istanbul was made due to a couple of old Tweets before the court and sentenced to almost ten years in prison; she is still free, because they went in the appeal. "Psycho motivated logically called" imamoğlu the government's refusal to cooperate with him. "A natural Reflex after a change of power", but in Ankara you would get used to the new conditions. The sound, as think imamoğlu will continue to be, campaigning on the slogan: "All good."

Because of the financial crisis, touting the government's self anywhere, to foreign capital. That imamoğlu credit received, is likely to annoy you especially. And the Metro is popular. Previously, they drove until midnight, now she drives on weekends around the clock. A gift to the party-loving Istanbul's youth. Imamoğlu has decided it so.
