Izmir's tram projects bureaucrat mill: After the tender was completed, tram projects, which were revised 7 times due to errors in route selection, also led to dizzying bureaucrat changes in Izmir Metropolitan.
While the tram projects initiated by the Izmir Metropolitan Municipality to relieve urban transportation have been criticized due to the inaccuracies in the route selection and the changes made for this reason, this time, the bureaucrats have been dismissed one after the other. Municipality in February 2014 Karşıyaka9,7 kilometers in Istanbul and about 13 kilometers in Konak. Hasan Poyraz, Head of the Suburban and Rail System Investments Department, also chaired the tender commission. Poyraz, who played an important role in the realization of Üçyol-Üçkuyular, Bornova Metro and İZBAN lines, was dismissed on the order of Mayor Kocaoğlu 3 months after the tender. He was replaced by Ünal Dağlı, a branch manager at the Department of Science. By the way Karşıyaka The fact that the centuries-old palm trees on the route of the tram, identified with the district, will be moved to another location caused public reaction. A large number of Izmir people organized through a social networking site launched a campaign to prevent the trees from being moved.
Upon the escalation of the palm crisis, Mayor Kocaoğlu requested information from the Rail System Department. The Suburban and Rail System Investments Department prepared the information requested by Kocaoğlu in a file and delivered it to the relevant deputy secretary general. However, the information reached Kocaoğlu late. Angered by this, Kocaoğlu decided to hold a coordination meeting with the assistant general secretary. However, Raif Canbek, Deputy Secretary General responsible for metro and rail system projects, could not attend the meeting due to his wife's illness. Rail System Department Head Ünal Dağlı was present at the meeting instead of Canbek.

Dağlı, who was taken from Kocaoğlu's harsh reaction, first took annual leave and then resigned from the head of department in May 2015. Dağlı started to work as an engineer in the same presidency. Dağlı's unexpected resignation was shocking. Hasan Poyraz was appointed to this position again instead of Dağlı. However, in this process, the tender ended and the place delivery Karşıyaka 3 revisions in the Tramway and 4 times in the Konak Tramway project caused the professional chambers to react, and the second term department of Poyraz ended in February 2016. He dismissed Kocaoğlu Poyraz once again and replaced him with Mehmet Ergenekon, the Head of the Department of Science, Infrastructure Maintenance and Repair Branch. The changes in the duties of bureaucrats responsible for tram projects were not limited to the heads of departments. First the heads of departments and then the deputy secretary general, to which the rail system department was affiliated, changed. Raif Canbek, Deputy Secretary General responsible for Rail System investments, handed over this duty to Buğra Gökçe, who was transferred from Ankara Çankaya Municipality to İzmir on the instructions of Mayor Kocaoğlu. Canbek was later brought to the General Directorate of ESHOT. In such a big project, costing millions of liras, such a change in the management level in a short time like 2 years has raised questions in the minds. Finally, it was learned that Mehmet Ergenekon, who was appointed as the Rail System Department Head, had no previous experience in rail system investments.
