Republican People's Party (CHP) İstanbul mayoral candidate Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu has paid a visit to İstanbul's wholesale fruit and vegetable market in Bayrampaşa, meeting with the members and administrators of the local fruit and vegetable sellers' association.Fruit and vegetable sellers in Bayrampaşa spoke to the candidate yesterday about their trade, in particular voicing concerns over the costs and availability of parking. Kılıçdaroğlu told them that all of their problems were solvable. "The only thing missing is willpower. I hope that this willpower will be seen on March 29 [the date of the upcoming local elections], and then these problems will be solved," he said.
Reminded by journalists that the possibility of the market being moved to another spot was on the agenda, Kılıçdaroğlu said: "If the people here say the facility is insufficient and that they want to move somewhere else, then let them do so. But if they say it's sufficient then the facility will stay here, and they will continue to serve İstanbulites."
