If you look at the end of the legislation manual in your hand, you will see that the execution of the directive belongs to the Board of Directors of TUREB, which shows the point where we came in legal terms. We are in the profession and bringing some editing’s in the regulation to solve the problems that occur. The Ministry is also making an editing on the parts that the legislation gives to the Ministry. We have demanded that a new "Circular" be issued by the Ministry in order to overcome the problems we have experienced in the interpretation of different parts at its local branches especially edited by the Ministry. Editing to be made in the regulation had to deal with extremely important topics such as elimination of such disruptions, re-opening of places where we needed clarification in our realm of authority. Over the past year, studies reach us from their work with own members of our chamber's, their delegates sent to you by e-mail and it is in the same way as it is in the prepared files in your hands at the moment. Unfortunately, this general assembly is being done under the controversy of "ordinary or extraordinary, single date or two dates, delegacy falls or not?" In such cases, we always discuss matters with our lawyers and act in consultation with the election board officials according to their relation. We know that in this organization again we have done the same thing, 34 delegates have signed the delegates list of present. I wish for such an important issue we could meet up with 134 delegates but not 34 and do efficient work, I would like to thank the delegates who came from different provinces for this purpose and aware of their responsibility" said.
