The proposal to purchase the immovable property was accepted with the votes of the AKP-MHP group in the parliament. CHP and IYI Party opposed the decision.

In a statement to SÖZCÜ, CHP Member of Parliament Beyzade Kayabaşı emphasized that the AKP municipality started to spend the budget unplanned by purchasing land in the first month of the year.

Explaining that no information and documents were presented in the commission regarding the purchase of the immovable property and no information was given about the price, Kayabaşı said, “They said that the price of the land will be determined by the appraisal commission and the committee. We did not find it right to transfer our authority to the appreciation commission. And we voted 'no' to the decision,” he said.
