Speaking about the fact that, with the exception of the Republican People's (CHP) Party run Cankaya Municipality, all municipality owned and run social facilities in and around Ankara forbid the sale and consumption of alcohol on their grounds, CHP Ankara MP Yilmaz Ates said this:
CHP: Ban product of oppressive mindset
"The implementation of these laws is the result of an oppressive mindset. Municipalties should not be able to affect the life styles of citizens in this way. This is an intervention into people's lifetstyles. According to information coming in to us, there are no more snack bars selling alcohol even left in Sincan."
