President Abdullah Gul yesterday received members of the Press Card Commission, led by Prime Ministry Directorate General of Press and Information (BYEGM) head Salih Melek, at the Cankaya Presidential Palace. During the meeting, Melek told Gul about their work to boost the ease of use and benefits of press cards for members of the media. Melek also presented Gul an honorary press card.
