February 10th, 2014 :A9 TV (Answering a viewer's question about removing party flags)
ADNAN OKTAR: Really they are a little ugly. And you can’t understand which party they belong to. Everywhere looks so dirty. There is no need for them. Television and radio are enough. We will not look at the flag and say, “O look how nice this flag is. Let’s go and vote for this party.” This is a little odd. All the parties can mutually decide and abandon this practice. They look very dirty and they can help Syria and the poor people with that money. They can buy food and clothing for our brothers and sisters in the Southeast region.
