During his 7-year presidency term, he was a firm defender of secularist principles of the Republic of Turkey, thus he vetoed some bills legislated by the Justice and Development Party. He was trusted by the secular élite as a guaranteer of the secular republic. He wasn't a public figure, and he was known by his humble personality.
