"I invite him to please come and take a tour ... I wonder if he will be able to find such a golden toilet seat in any of these washrooms," stated Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on account of the alleged corruption accusations fired at him Saturday. He further stated that he is willing to resign from his post if a golden toilet seat is found in the new Presidential Palace, Reuters reported.

He commented on a statement made by opposition leader Kilicdaroglu of the Republican People's Party (CHP).

"Gentlemen in Ankara, palaces have been built for you, planes bought, Mercedes cars purchased ... golden seats have been bought, that's how you use the toilet," Kilicdaroglu said in the Aegean city of Izmir Saturday, alluding that the Turkish President has been involved in large-scale corruption.

Meanwhile, the White Palace is currently fully complete and located at the western edge of the Turkish capital.
