You think your municipal leaders waste money? Get a load of this.
The mayor of the Turkish capital Ankara spent taxpayers money to build a giant robot statue.
The statue resembles a Transformer and is being used to promote a theme park.
A total of 20 robots will be at the park.
According to The Independent, Turkey's Chamber of Architects and Engineers (TMMOB) filed a criminal complaint against Mayor Melih Gökçek for using public money to build the robot.
TMMOB representatives called the statue a 'monstrosity'.
Gökçek, meanwhile says, “respect the robot.”
