The first assembly meeting has been held under the chairmanship of the new Municipality Mayor Mehmet Ergün Turan, who has been elected in the Local Elections of Fatih Municipal Assembly of March 31. Making a speech prior to addressing the agenda, new mayor M. Ergün Turan said, "It's an honor to serve Fatih".

Fatih Municipality Mayor M. Ergün Turan talked about the works he conducted in the election process and the kind of administration he will pursue during his duty as mayor. Mentioning that they will leave aside their political identity during the administration process, Turan said, "I've been serving in the assembly for 15 years. Local governments are multicultural entities and are the primary centers of democracy. Many things emerge here first. Starting from today, we'll share the table with our fellows from AK Party (Justice and Development Party), MHP (Nationalist Movement Party) and (CHP) Republican People's Party at the government level not with our political identities but with our service identities. People have high expectations from us. We'll meet their expectations and we'll work hard. My most sincere promise to people during the elections was this: "We'll work hard". If God permits, we'll utilize all the knowledge we gained in all these years to serve our people. It's an honor to serve Fatih and it's a blessing to serve our nation".

Following his speech, the agenda was addressed, wherein the 1st and 2nd Deputy Mayors, council clerk, municipal board members and expertise commissions of Fatih Municipal Assembly as well as council members to represent Fatih Municipality in associations were elected. Faruk Gökkuş was elected the 1st Deputy Mayor and Ahmet Küçük was elected the 2nd Deputy Mayor after 37 council members of Fatih Municipality voted.

Following the elections, 2018 Annual Report of Fatih Municipality was presented to the assembly, which was accepted.
