Kilicdaroglu promises free housing for earthquake victims if elected President
Opposition’s joint presidential candidate and CHP (Republican People’s Party) leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu, who is also the presidential candidate of the Millet Alliance, has vowed to provide free housing for earthquake victims if he is elected as the President of Turkey. He stated that he would adhere to the constitution's provisions on housing rights and would not allow earthquake victims to be charged for housing.
In a video message, Kilicdaroglu said that providing free housing to earthquake victims was not a mere pledge but a responsibility.
“My promise of free housing is not a pledge; it is an obligation, a necessity, a must, and we will do it. There will be no 20-year debt or anything like that. By the way, don't worry, dear people, there is money. We can mobilize the world and find this money very quickly,” he said.
Kilicdaroglu also stressed that the construction of earthquake-resistant buildings was an urgent matter, and the government should not sell housing to earthquake victims that violates the constitution's provisions.
Kilicdaroglu underlined that all the necessary documents and signatures for the construction of buildings are approved by the state, and citizens trust the state's commitment to providing safe and secure housing.
Kilicdaroglu announced that his party would submit a bill to the Parliament on Monday, addressing the issue of housing for earthquake victims.
