Mr. Abdullah Gul will be a successful president, Arzuhan Dogan Yalcindag, CEO of the Turkish Industrialists' and Businessmen's Association (TUSIAD), said on Friday.
Justice and Development (AK) Party's candidate for president Abdullah Gul paid a visit of courtesy to TUSIAD's office in Ankara on Friday and sought TUSIAD's support for his candidacy.
"We wish Mr. Gul every success as the new president. It is a democratic necessity to respect the decision of the parliament after general elections", told Yalcindag.
"As a non-governmental organization, TUSIAD will watch the agenda of the government and make the necessary comments and criticisms when needed," noted Yalcindag.
Meanwhile, Gul told reporters that he had a fruitful meeting with TUSIAD officials on Friday morning.
"The responsibilities of the president are clear. If the parliament elects me the next president of Turkey, I will embrace all segments of our society equally," underlined Gul.
