New mea­sures aim to re­move bu­reau­cratic ob­sta­cles from state

Daily Sabah (Turkey) - - Politics -

PRES­I­DENT Re­cep Tayyip Er­doğan has an­nounced on Fri­day that bu­reau­cratic ob­sta­cles in pub­lic ser­vices are to be elim­i­nated, ac­cord­ing to the de­cree pub­lished in the Of­fi­cial Gazette.

Ac­cord­ing to the de­cree, Er­doğan said the govern­ment will have more fo­cus on prob­lem solv­ing and a re­sult-ori­ented and cit­i­zen-cen­tred ap­proach to make pub­lic ser­vices re­duce de­lays in bu­reau­cratic work.

Since the con­sti­tu­tional changes to switch the govern­ment from a par­lia­men­tary to a pres­i­den­tial sys­tem were ap­proved by the pub­lic in last year’s ref­er­en­dum on April 16, the Jus­tice and De­vel­op­ment Party (AK Party) has ramped up its ef­forts to re­struc­ture pub­lic ad­min­is­tra­tions as part of the ad­just­ment laws with the aim of pre­vent­ing bu­reau­cratic oli­garchy and slug­gish­ness.

He added the is­sues that cause un­wield­i­ness in pub­lic ser­vices have to be abol­ished.

“The ser­vices should be pro­vided as fast as pos­si­ble and in the best way to our peo­ple, and be­hav­iors that harm the in­te­gra­tion of the state and peo­ple should be avoided,” Er­doğan stressed.

The Pres­i­dent said all nec­es­sary mea­sures should be taken to fi­nal­ize the ap­pli­ca­tions in a speedy and cor­rect man­ner. Ear­lier this year, the rul­ing party es­tab­lished five com­mit­tees with the aim of work­ing on the ad­just­ment laws and changes nec­es­sary for the Prime Min­istry and Pres­i­dency. AK Party Deputy Chair­man Cevdet Yıl­maz, who is also the head of the com­mit­tee for re­struc­tur­ing the ex­e­cu­tion, said to the Turk­ish me­dia that the party aims to es­tab­lish a sim­pler and bet­ter func­tion­ing pub­lic ad­min­is­tra­tion.
