The newly-declared opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) mayor of Istanbul Ekrem İmamoğlu has suggested that he will shed light on and put a stop to municipality funds transferred to organisations affiliated to Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), Deutsche Welle Turkish said on Friday. “The time of serving ‘the man’, associations, persons, foundations, and religious groups has ended,” said İmamoğlu four days after local polls on March 31. “We will start such a transparent administration that, everything, including my mayorship will be made public,” he said.
