“I conveyed my insistence on this issue to the authorities of the Motherland Turkey at every opportunity. I will do so again to the authorities of the Republic of Turkey, who we are preparing to host on our island for the 20th of July celebrations”, Üstel said
Üstel added that there had been historic failures in the management of electricity authority Kib-Tek. He repeated that he will make all efforts to hold those who have been negligent, accountable, including those who precipitated expensive fuel purchases.
