Nominated by Yeliz D., Ankara:
I vote for Mansur Yavas. He is an honest, brave and determined mayor who doesn't discriminate against people. He works for all the people. He cares about the old ones as well as the young. He is one of the most hardworking and innovative mayors that you can see in the world.I vote for Mansur Yavas. He is an honest, brave and determined mayor who doesn't discriminate against people. He works for all the people. He cares about the old ones as well as the young. He is one of the most hardworking and innovative mayors that you can see in the world.


Nominated by Ece S., Ankara:
I am a citizen who lives in Ankara and I am really satisfied with Mansur Yavas's achievements. In the 2nd year of his mayorship, he has done many achievements to fight against poverty. Since Turkey has been struggling against poverty (devaluation of Turkish Liras, biased political regulations etc.), many citizens in Ankara cannot even feed themselves. Yavas created a special credit card for those families. They can buy their primary needs by using that card. He distributes meals, soup, bread for homeless people and students. 

Because of the COVID-19, students of Turkey are taking their classes via Zoom. Since, some regions in Ankara don't have an internet to access education, they couldn't take their classes. Yavas distributed the internet to EVERY region in Ankara. So, he solved one of the major problems in Ankara. 

Ankara is not only the capital city of Turkey but an education city. There are many university students who come all over the world and different cities in Turkey. In his very first year in mayorship, Yavas decided to reduce the price of the water supplies for students. If you have a student ID, there will be a huge reduction in your water bill. :) 

Besides that, he made uncountable contributions for Ankara. Before Mansur Yavas, the municipality had a debt of 11 billion TL because of the wastage. From now, the municipality has no debt, and has extra savings. For fighting with a corrupted municipality system, he conducts every meeting online. As a citizen, you can watch every meeting and decision for Ankara. Also, he hangs the savings, expenses and services fee on billboards. Now, all municipal affairs are managed with full transparency. Thank you for your consideration.


Nominated by Seher S. D., Ankara:
I deem Mr. Mansur Yavas worthy of this award for being an exemplary leader with his work and behavior. I thank him for being an example for us who followed the footsteps of M. Kemal Atatürk, the founding great leader of our Republic.


Nominated by Ferah G., Turkey:
I live in Istanbul but I admire the Ankara of Mr. Mansur Yavas. He is a leader. He is a forward-thinking leader with a worldview and a great leader who will make great contributions to the future. It is a great success for the people of Ankara, its tradesmen, to provide support to all citizens living there during this pandemic process and to make them feel that they always stand by them financially and morally. The fact that he recycles everything done just to spend money before him to contribute to his people shows that he is a great leader in this field. That is why I have hopefully been able to explain why this world-view, secular, democratic and respectful man should win the 2021 World Mayor Award.


Nominated by Pinar K., Turkey:
I strongly believe that Mr. Mansur Yavas deserved to be the Mayor of World 2021 with his very high-end leadership skills.
 
He has won the mayorship election in Turkey under the very tough circumstances such as partisan and anti-opposition press andpressures from the authorities.
 
He was once mayor of little district Ankara called ‘Beypazarı’ which was just a long time ago and was a simply suburb and he turned that place into a worldwide brand with the city construction and creating its natural mineral water brand.
 
During this unfortunate pandemic , he has processed various social aid packages for the people who lost their jobs and who are in deep need.
 
He also brought the transparent mayorship aspects by publishing his parliament discussions online as live. He has many skills that we may not able to count. Although I live in Istanbul and has already very good mayor, Mr. Ekrem Imamoglu, I still envy the citizens of Ankara city.

Nominated by Galip E. Ö., Ankara:
Now he is the mayor - next the possible president

Turkish people had missed a honest politician for a long time and fortunately they have some now. After municipal elections in 2019, new mayors from opposition union (CHP-İYİ-HDP), changed the system and provide transparency which people had never seen before. They are good but the best one is Mansur Yavas.

He showed his abilities when he was a mayor of Beypazarı. He transformed this small city into a popular tourism centre. Even there was a no sea, after he made traditional places and provide local housewives into cook managers, everybody started to visit this small and cute city at the weekends. As a result he converted Beypazarı from desert to rose garden.

After he lost local elections in 2014 which was thought questionable results, it was his time in 2019. Despite his political past in nationalist party, from left to right many different minded people voted for him. And he showed how he deserved this position in a short time.

The most important thing he made was to remind people that the budget of Ankara is a result of their taxes. And once he said, “We are a worker of yours. Because we get our salaries from your taxes”.

Even inherited heavily debt municipality he helped everyone. He helped a small autistic boy, who was living in Şanlıurfa in the southeast part of Turkey. The doctors adviced a dog to this guy because of illness. His poor family didn’t have possibility to buy one and applied to Municipality of Şanlıurfa. After no answer his father applied to Mansur Yavas. And he gifted a puppy to small guy who was living 850 kilometers away from Ankara.

As a result, in a short time Mansur Yavas became a popular figure and true candidate of Turkish people for the next president. Because he showed also his abilities by helping local farmers, local producers, livestocks. Then he took this products and gave them to poor people of Ankara. He showed if the budgets could be used for only people so much things change to positive way in a short time.


Nominated by Kaan T., Ankara:
My English is very little. im sorry. Yavas isvery important person for my city. My city is Ankara. Because he working all day, all week. He don't lie to us. 

Turkish: Mansur Yavas çok önemli bir insan. Şehrimiz Ankara için büyük kazanım. Yaptığı çalışmaları tek tek maliyetleriyle açıklıyor. Gece gündüz demeden sürekli çalışıyor. O sadece Ankara'ya değil tüm dünyaya örnek olacak bir başkan.


Nominated by Ebru A., Turkey:
As a person living in Istanbul, I closely follow the achievements of Ankara Metropolitan Mayor Mansur Yavas. Despite all the difficulties he has faced in the city council, he has a discreet, unifying language that does his job perfectly. With that stance equitable and confidence, not only in Ankara, Turkey is the ideal all mayor.

In case of any general election, I have no doubt it would be the closest candidate to the Presidency of Turkey. We are proud of his achievements and we love him very much.


Nominated by Mehmet C., Ankara:
I am from Ankara, I am 35 years old. I like the fact that Mansur president is far from politics. Communicating at an equal distance to everyone, regardless of people, ensures that the municipal services are transferred to the public in a fair manner.

I hope he will be our president in the future. I have full faith.

It provided internet infrastructure to the remote villages of Ankara, never left support for tradesmen during the pandemic process, and the municipality initiated a live public tender for service procurement. Now everything is more transparent, more secure. Nobody can play, nobody can commit corruption.


Nominated by Ali, Ankara:

Nominated by Burcu K., outside Turkey:
I would like to vote for President Mr. Mansur Yavas for his excellent leadership and endeavors during his presidency to the capital city of Turkey. He has been one of the best mayors and politicians Turkey has ever had. He has been honest, fair and transparent during his 2 year presidency until now. He always says a municipality is there for each citizen of that city from his/her birth to his/her death. When a single person needs anything which can be financial or infrastructural or a job or anything, he and his team is there to listen and provide solutions.

He has been extremely supportive to Ankara and to other cities of Turkey with his creative ideas during the difficult corona times. He and his team created various projects including a national charity project together with other majors in Turkey. He has been support to people who could not pay their bills, who needed support for their production activities, students who needed electronic tablets during home schooling, university students who could not pay their debts.

They also provided free WiFi service in many locations in Ankara including very small villages of the city. Not to forget about those cats and dogs of the city. Mr. Yavas said they will continue feeding those little sweet neighbors of ours during pandemic during the closure of cafes and restaurants. One of the most important endeavors of Mr. Yavas was to bring transparency to the municipality which did not exist before his presidency. Any one can watch live tender processes of the municipality and stay assured that their taxes are used very efficiently and not wasted through corruption or through any other unfair purchasing process.


This email would continue with lots of other success stories and future plans of the president, but I would like to finalize here not to bore the reader.

I strongly believe that Mansur Yavas deserves this award for his amazing personality, for his creative and service oriented plans and projects to Ankara which are also utilized nationally.

Thank you very much for giving this opportunity to share our thoughts and to be able to vote for our mayor.


Nominated by Sinem G., Ankara:
Mansur Yavas is someone I really love even though I have never met him before. I follow his plans for the city Ankara even though I myself don’t live in Ankara. He has a logical view for achieving his goals. He has done so many things so far and I truly believe that he will do a lot more for his city and country. I hope that someday he can be the mayor of The Republic of Turkey too.


Nominated by Esra Y.,
I am a young man who prepared for the exam during the pandemic period and whose psychology was disrupted by frequently playing with his history. Our workplaces were closed, we had a shortage of book resources, and downstream slowly rushed to our aid here as well. He was destrk with his trials and motivating speeches. In the vision of Ankara, it is progressing at full speed. We, as young people, are seeing a transparent municipality for the first time.


Nominated by Saban K., Ankara:
After Mansur Yavas became mayor, the tenders held in Ankara are both transparent and at a minimum 70% lower price than the same business of the previous period.
In this pandemic period, he gave serious assistance to voters in need. The materials required for this aid were purchased from all Ankara tradesmen.

On Valentine's Day, women gave roses to Ankara Municipality employees and female Healthcare workers. Supply of these roses was purchased equally from all flower sellers in Ankara province. We are like Mansur Yavas and I think it is worthy of all awards


Nominated by Fatma Y., Ankara:
At the moment of pandemic, he took care of the elders who are not allowed to go outside. He supported the students during the online education, he gave them free internet. For the medical workers he gave free transport. He supported the hairdresser while they are closed at the pandemic. he didn't tax the tradesman while the are in hard situation. He did these things with a lot of debts from the previous mayor, just from the savings he did. He repaired the roads. And lots of things. His vision of Ankara is more trees with Ankara. The green Ankara project which he started. Love from Ankara our dear mayor Mansur Yavas.,

Nominated by Eda S., Ankara:
Mansur Yavas is a tremendous and remarkable mayor of Ankara, which is the capital city of Turkey. He has done remarkable actions for the city of Ankara. During the pandemic, he helped a lot of poor people, he distributed milk and food to the people who are in need. He also donated money to the jobless musicians and actors. In addition to that, he also distributed lap tops to the students who are in need.

I recommend as the best mayor of Mansur Yavas as a candidate.


Nominated by Oguzhan D., Ankara:
Firstly, I wish all of you health and success. 

Mr.Yavas show the Turkish nation that he can manage a city with justice and equality. 
During the pandemic, he has been helped million of people with food, money, and courage. Turkey is a country that manages by a one-party system. Which is bad for the other opinion and parties. He has open a way to show people to light. From now on, we walk with him. The action that he took for Ankara you can find in the newspaper. 
What I want to express from this mail is that how people feel about him. 

Thank you for giving me chance to explain to our Mayor on an international platform. 


Nominated by Yasemin C., Ankara:
I cannot tell you what Mansur Yavas had done (as it is quite a long list) since the beginning of his position as a Mayor but I can speak up about his honesty, diligence and about his excellent work during this time.

Sharing the council meetings online and reporting his work during this time with documents to the public shows a great deal of his honesty and transparency which was and is very important for the people who vote for the mayor. For many years, mayors in Turkey never shared or found necessary to share the meetings and the work they carried out and therefore people never got the chance to know where the tax money had been spent and what kind of service that the taxpayers received. Now, we know what could have been done with our money and the quality service we could have received.

He also succeeded in many projects that the mayors should have done long before Mansur Yavas and yet, we started to learn with him what the true purpose of council and the mayor for the people in that city. The needs of the people may change from one city to another but in all cities, there are people who need help both financially and emotionally. Mansur Yavas does whatever he could, with a great diligence despite the obstacles that he gets from the political power which lost the last municipal elections against Mansur Yavas. And, he carries out his work without self-promotion as his one of the best motto is helping people without commercializing it. Unfortunately, this state of mind -putting obstacles in front of the one who wins the municipal elections against the candidate of their own- is insisted on not to leave Turkey for some time unless the political power changes in the first coming general elections. As Turkish people, we hope for the best for our country.

Money that is earned from council entities and that comes from the taxpayers is being spent for the maximum benefit for the people of Ankara. Not only regular people but also for small business owners in various kinds, are getting support during the pandemic which is vital for the survival of the business and so people who maintain a family with this income. So, instead of supporting multinational and big domestic companies which already unnecessarily get support from the government, he supports people and businesses who need the support most for the sake of millions of people's family budgets. He does this while he pays off the huge debt that was inherited from the previous Mayor who is now about to stand trial in any minute because of his corrupt ruling for over 20 years. We are learning everyday a new corruption that how our tax money was stolen to make some people rich unfairly and spent in dead-end investments.

Thanks to his excellent work, Ankara gets its best out of a mayor and public service that it deserves long ago. I tried my best to explain what I think and how I feel about Mansur Yavas and I hope that I could enlighten you a little bit about this great honest diligent man.

Nominated by C. E., Ankara:
There are lots of improvements in daily life of people of Ankara to mention but the point is the HOPE Mansur Yavas gave to Turkish people. He changed the way of politics by giving up to argue with the opponents and only focused on the problems of people. He brought justice and transparency. Against all the worst affects of Covid pandemic he gave all the support he can especially to the people on the poor and needy side. When he was unable to help with municipality sources he encouraged people to help each other and since he was the most trustworthy politic person for decades not only Ankara but whole turkey responded his call to pay the bills and pay the store credits of people in need and food support for poor people.

It was amazing . he built places for homeless, he gave free seeds for farmers and promised to buy the crops and so on. He did so much to tell here but the most important thing is he showed us how much we can change with just one vote. He is not just a major but he is a friend for people in need since he started, he is a father for the students since he provided free food in front of schools, he is grandfather for the villager children since he provided internet for every single village in Ankara... The list is endless just like our support and love for our mayor Mansur Yavas.

As the last words he is a hero for everyone but especially for those who don’t know English nor have a mail account nor have the ability to support in this platform because of social educational or economical disadvantages. Thank you for the opportunity and best wishes from Ankara.

Nominated by Cansu A., Ankara:
Ankara is cold, gloomy and has the least green area among the cities you mentioned. Moreover, despite being the capital, the necessary importance was not given. When Mansur Yavas arrived, he tried to reduce these problems at first. He has given people financial support and has done so without waiting for these people to support him. He has reduced the number of cars that harm both the world and the country's income. Just like the people of the city he manages, he comes to work by buses. I will be leaving this country soon, but Mansur Yavas is always my hope for this country.


Nominated by Cesur K., Ankara:
My candidate is Mansur Yavas. You ask why ?
Mansur Yavas is working for the full service. He uses the money of the people until the last drop, with the understanding of transparent municipalism, for service away from rent.
