There are those who approve the ruling party dismissing mayors of some provinces and appointing trustees, as well as there are those who oppose and cannot reconcile such a policy with democratic rules!
The mayors of the three provinces were dismissed and replaced by the governors of those provinces as the trustees, and there are those who defend the appointments by saying, "it is unacceptable for our municipalities to be under the tutelage of terrorism".
But those who criticize the event by saying 'Those who came with election should go with the election' is not less! We have tried to determine how this policy pursued by the government is met with extensive research.
The first thing we noticed was that this policy of power was met with a widespread and intense reaction while receiving weak support! The masses seem to dislike this policy, except for the telephone celebration support given by the two marginalized parties in the opposition.
Even the opponents of the ruling party are not satisfied with such a policy. Stretching the ropes more than necessary is not considered a sign of good development and expresses concerns about the negative consequences.
Yes, even those who took roads together with today's power do not agree with the decision to appoint a trustee. They declare that they see it as a mortgage on the will of the nation.
The views that appear so contradictory on the same issue are also the source of new party searches.
If the others do not accept what some of the people under the same party say, there is of course no alternative to the formation of a new party.
Assuming that a group of terrorists have taken over the municipalities, applauding the dismissal of elected mayors, while others see this as a tremendously wrong step, the establishment of new parties is of course inevitable.
Moreover, the fact that the dismissals are related to terrorism is not a newly emerged situation today!
Those who were allowed to be candidates, who were appointed as trustees after being dismissed, were recognized and known.
Wouldn't it have been more sensible to say that when they said that they were candidates for such a tension, “friend you are in a relationship with terror, you cannot be a candidate”? It is clear that the decision will contribute to the acceleration of the separation movement within the ruling party. In other words, they do nothing but accelerate the establishment of new parties with this decision.
