In traditional societies, political and economic security come with loyalties in various forms. Turkey is no exception. What is unfortunate in Turkey’s case is that it has been struggling to join the EU and reform its bureaucracy and economic structure in line with Western standards. Despite significant progress initially, that dream has long gone.
High-level government officials and local authorities are acting with impunity. They understand well that political loyalty is more important than complying with the law.Mahir Zeynalov
