A joint statement was issued by 11 Metropolitan Mayors of CHP regarding rising fuel prices. 0054BB President Ekrem וmamoğlu announced the announcement on his social media account.

Imamoul shared the above statement with the memo, “As the 11 Mayors of Metropolitan, we present our statement in honor of the information of the general public.”

The statement pointed out that fuel prices have risen by more than 94% in the 70 days since the beginning of the year, and that municipalities have reached a level where public transportation is not available.

“Sorry, we need to reflect on the public.”

In the statement, the proposal not to use SCTs in public transport in response to soaring fuel prices was repeatedly ignored by the central government, saying, “It is inevitable that public transport tariffs will be significantly increased. We regret that in the future we must reflect these increases to our citizens for reasons beyond our control. “

The description is as follows:

“Unfortunately, during the difficult times facing the Turkish economy, economic predictability has been replaced by daily price increases and volatile processes. The new situation faces serious challenges for citizens and local governments. Until a while ago, fuel prices soared due to the sharp rise in foreign exchange rates. These rises have continued, and for the first time in Japan, fuel prices have risen for seven consecutive days.

In fact, fuel prices have risen by more than 94% in 70 days since the beginning of the year. Similar rises apply to energy prices. These extraordinary rises made public transport price increases obsolete some time ago, making the situation even more difficult than before.

Healthy and sustainable public transport services in our big cities are one of the most important obligations of our municipality. Labor costs such as fuel and electricity used in public transport, as well as maintenance and repair costs resulting from overseas spare parts, are so high that municipalities can no longer afford them. Unfortunately, our proposal, which has repeatedly requested that SCTs not be removed from fuels used in public transport, at least, has been ignored by the central government.

Given all these processes, it is inevitable that public transport tariffs will increase significantly in the near future. Unfortunately, for reasons beyond our control, we need to reflect these increases in our citizens. In addition, many citizens use public transport for free, as required by law and within the framework of parliamentary decisions. Regulations promulgated in 2016 for citizens to receive healthy services have not increased the support of 1,000 TL paid by municipalities to privately owned vehicles that have licensed public transport in the city. Hmm. In such situations, transportation may meet citizens who use public transportation for free. By raising the price of this support application, it is very easy for the government to prevent public transport discomfort. “
