Commenting on how the coalition government will affect Turkey, former Prime Minister Tansu Ciller was a guest of Strongwoman at the Strong Turkey Summit hosted by A Para. While appreciating the strengthened parliamentary declarations of the six opposition parties, Chiller also assessed the possibility of a coalition.
“The coalition government is worse than the coup” Mr. Chiller, for example, said the economy was affected by the damage caused by the coup d’etat in the era of the multi-party coalition. freckles, “Turkey’s growth rate during the coup was 3.1 percent. During the one-party administration it was over 6 percent. Regarding the coalition, it was successful only in two coalition periods. One was the leadership of the late Suleyman Demirel. Below, the other was successful under the leadership of me and the late Nekmettin Elbacan. I caught 7.8%. The average of all these is 3.4%. 3.1 in the coup period, 3.4 in the most successful coalition Excluding successful coalitions, the average is 2.6 percent. Coalitions are worse than coups. “ He said.
“A $ 40 billion project has been blocked.”
freckles, “I was the prime minister of the coalition. I came up with a very special project to repair Turkey’s deteriorating economy. It was a project that brought about $ 40 billion. Turkey’s debt was about $ 20 billion. There was a big crisis. At that time, the phone was new. I said, “Let’s sell some of the phone.” Then everyone started selling PTT anyway. Huge amounts of money, like $ 40 billion, came before us. My concern was to prevent the crisis. I put this project on the table, I say I’ll do it as a coalition government. The coalition ministers took it against the Constitutional Court at the time, and they rejected it. Erdal Innonu was the Deputy Prime Minister. Nevertheless, the foreign minister of his own party prevented it. I spent many nights in Congress to get rid of this, but they canceled it.The reason is “to threaten Turkey’s independence” Said.
“PTT sold for $ 5 billion”
Chiller said PTT’s T was sold for $ 5 billion for free after the coalition ended, and this money wasn’t enough for Turkey. “If I had done it then, the war on terror would not have been successful. Without the April 5 decision, Turkey would not have been able to get out of the crisis and it would be an economic problem. There wasn’t. “ He said.
“The Foreign Minister said,” This decision has benefited appropriately. ”
Ciller talked about the dialogue with the Foreign Minister during the period mentioned after the coalition.
“One day I asked,” Why did you join the opposition and stop it? ” “I’m not hostile to you. I’m a member of the Left, but this decision wasn’t for us. This decision will benefit our rights.”
According to the information obtained, in August 1993, Deputy Mumtaz Soisal of Ankara and 92 agents demanded “suspension of execution” in an application to the Constitutional Court (AYM). Tansu Ciller-The Government of Murat Karayartin at the time enacted legislation with the Power of Law (KHK), allowing some or all of the communications services to be carried out by local or foreign natural persons or legal entities. The Constitutional Court suspended the enforcement of the law because it was unconstitutional, but decided to lift the regulation on November 6, 1993. In that decision, the Constitutional Court stated that bulk sales of more than 49 percent of Türk Telekom are incompatible with the public interest. At that time, if PTT privatization had not been included in the coalition, the Turkish economy would have been paid $ 20 billion in domestic debt. As Çiller stated, PTT’s T (Telekom), which could not be privatized due to the Constitutional Court’s dismissal decision, was transferred to Ojer Telekomünikasyon A.Ş. The remittance amount is $ 6.05 billion.
