Saadet Party Chairman Temel Karamollaoğlu spoke at the April meeting of his party’s provincial presidents and provincial inspectors. Speaking at the online meeting, Karamollaoğlu made striking statements on the economy based on the latest inflation data.
“THE RISE IN INFLATION WILL NOT STOP”
Stating that the economy is the first problem of the citizens and the country, Karamollaoğlu said about the inflation figure announced at 69.97% by TUIK: “The inflation rate has exceeded the last 20 years and it does not seem not that it will stop. In reality, this rate is much higher, but even TURKSTAT can no longer hide it.
“THE FOLLOWING DAYS WILL BE MORE DIFFICULT IN THE ECONOMY”
Expressing that the government has no serious policy that can stop this despite the negative economic indicators, Karamollaoğlu said, “We are facing very serious problems in all areas of the economy. We are only at the beginning of this work. I regret to say that the days to come will be more difficult than these days. Our fellow citizens must prepare for it, at least psychologically. Because it is obvious that the government cannot solve this problem or prevent it.
“THE COLLECTION OPERATION CANNOT HIDE THE STATEMENT IN THE ECONOMY”
Pointing out that the government is trying to cover up the bad course of the economy with collection operations in domestic politics, Karamollaoğlu said: “If the money that goes into a person’s pocket cannot support his family, it will cause social explosions. But the president says there are problems everywhere. When inflation is at 6% in the West, the ground is shaken, and we are at 60%. It is not possible to solve the cost of living and inflation with a perception operation. It’s only our job to solve it,” he said.
“WE HAVE PUT FOREIGN POLICY TO SUPPORT THE ECONOMY”
Stating that the only decision taken by the government after the economic situation was to make a “U” turn in foreign policy, Karamollaoğlu said: “Now they are making peace with Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, with which they argued until yesterday. . They go one step further and prepare the ground for peace with Egypt. In order to get out of the quagmire of the economy, they entered a completely different atmosphere of foreign policy. Maybe they want to relieve the economy with something that can come from there,” he said.
“NORMALIZATION WITH ISRAEL IS A LOSS OF MIND”
Continuing his speech with his foreign policy program, Karamollaoğlu reacted to the government’s normalization measures with Israel. Karamollaoğlu said: “The one who occupied Palestine. They are trying to normalize with Zionist Israel, which has removed Palestinians from their homes, taken them prisoner and reached out to Al-Aqsa Mosque. Abnormal is not normalized. What is needed is to normalize and correct the behavior on the abnormal side. However, as the persecution continues in Palestine, normalizing with those who practice it is not wise,” he said.
“TURKEY FAILED IN PEOPLE CLASS”
Karamollaoğlu continued his speech by stating that there are also major problems in justice after the economy, and drew attention to the victimization of those who came to the agenda with the suicide case. the last days. Karamollaoğlu said: “Turkey has failed when it comes to those who have decree laws. Turkey has ceased to be a rule of law. Judges make decisions to please the government. The judge who decides by looking into the eyes of power is not a judge. In such a country, one cannot speak of law. I appeal to the members of power, to establish justice should be your first duty. “This country needs judges who uphold justice in spite of you.”
“LEADING REFUGEE IS NOT BY ORDER, IT WILL BE DONE BY CREATING AN APPROPRIATE ENVIRONMENT”
After his assessments on the economy, Karamollaoğlu also touched on the debates on refugees, which is the main item on the agenda for the past few days. He noted that it is essential for refugees to return to their homeland, but that an appropriate environment must be prepared for this. Karamollaoğlu said: “People left him not because they didn’t love him, but because their lives were in danger. For them to come back, the environment must be suitable for this. However, there is a great polarization because the blood intervenes there. It may take time, but the government should create a serious policy on this. The opposition must be careful in this process. It shouldn’t offend any part of the victim,” he said.
“WE DO NOT COMPLETE THE DISCUSSION BETWEEN SOYLU AND ÖZDAĞ”
Karamollaoğlu said he did not approve of the tension between Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu and Zafer party chairman Ümit Özdağ and said: “We do not consent to the fight between the interior minister and the president party”.
