Re: Mukhtar

Hi Charlotte,

yes, very frustrating but completely fed up having problems with the car because of the state of the roads and the having no response from the Mukhtar other than 'what do you want me to do about it!'

We know what the problem is and it's all political, our only neighbour ran against him in the last local election and lost because the current mukhtar is AK party so could afford to 'buy' votes resulting in our neighbour losing the election. The result is that we didnt get new electricity poles like everyone else in the village, our roads aren't repaired and we have no village water most of the time! All because these things would also be available to our neighbour, something the mukhtar doesn't want to happen!

This part of Turkish life can be a right royal pain in the bum sometimes!!!!!
