One of the affixs used extensively in the Turkish language is /+lIk, +lUk / affix. This affix has thirteen different qualities functionally. One of them is to derive the names that have a meaning the grade and office such as presidency, prime ministry, governorship, rectorate, the work of a mukhtar. The derivation of the names of these office is related to the use of the /+llk, +lUk / affix which is brought to the titles of the persons governing that office. In this study, formation and quality in terms of meaning of structures such as presidential election, rectorship election, the work a mukhtar election, mayorship election was examined in the context of the written language used since the first Turkish inscriptions. By being made the examination, it was determined that persons with titles such as president or rector representing that office should be elected, not the offices such as the presidency or the rectorship. In the context of meaning and logic, electing the person representing that office, not an office is a more feasible approach to language and narrative principles. Eventually, the reasons put forward and sample of usage belong to previous period of Turkish language have been taken into consideration, and it has been reached the end of that the structure we tried to explain above should be formed not as “+lIk,+lUk / +lI?I,+lU?U election”, but formed as “office name election” election of president, election of rector.
