Speaking at his presidential palace in Ankara, “We rapidly need to rid the bureaucracy of every single member of this structure, which poses a great threat to our state. I want you [district governors] to carry out careful work against the parallel state. You have my support. You can call my private secretary any time and give any information you have. Because, I am personally pursuing this fight,” Erdoğan said.
“The fight against the parallel structure is being closely followed by the National Security Council (MGK) and the State Audit Institution (DDK). This is an issue of national security,” Erdoğan stated.
