Turkey is a great country with its human, social and historical values that it represents. There are certain conditions for this country to strengthen itself”. and develop further. By carrying the economy and freeing it from the negative cyclical effects of today To continue its growth. Export-led growth that creates jobs. Second, to further strengthen Turkish democracy. The change of system, the transition to a presidential system is the most important step in this process of democratization. It must be completed. All the legal procedure, from the electoral law to the other laws, must be completed. Finally, this must be crowned by a new constitution. We all know that putschist constitutions, which are the product of militarism and oppressive regimes, no longer have even a single article that suits Turkey. We believe that Turkey will take it forward by making a more democratic constitution. The third condition is that we increase our power of social solidarity. From the employee here, from the employer here. Strengthen this culture of solidarity in all areas, from commercial life to school life, and know how to share. Get rid of selfishness. Believing that we can succeed together. When we realize this, we have no doubt that Turkey will progress towards becoming a greater Turkey in a way that suits it,” he concluded.
