Speaking on behalf of the Republican People's Party (CHP) Group about the ESHOT 2023 Budget, CHP Assembly Member Raşit Dirim gave information about the activities of ESHOT. Dirim said, “ESHOT's 2023 budget has been prepared by expanding the issues that the institution has to tackle during and after the pandemic. While the liter price of diesel was 2019 liras and 6 kurus in 29, today it has increased by 281 percent to 23 liras and 95 kurus. The inflation experienced in our country caused an increase of 200% to 500% in many areas such as electricity and spare parts. The costs of ESHOT are also increasing. When we look at the revenue data of such an important institution that carries 48 percent of public transportation in İzmir, while the institution had an average monthly income of 2019 TL in 100, 186 TL expenses, today it has an expense of 100 TL for each 408 TL income. While the main management authority in UKOME should have been the Izmir Metropolitan Municipality, with the change made in the central administration regulation, the will of the Izmir Metropolitan Municipality passed to the bureaucrats appointed by the central administration. Since 2019, fuel prices have increased 60 times. In this process, the public transportation schedule could only be updated twice due to UKOME's blocking.

There should be no practices that financially wear down the Izmir Metropolitan Municipality and ESHOT.”
