Mayor Ekrem İmamoğlu tweeted on Tuesday that the bills submitted thus far amount to TL 1,990,000 ($281,000) and that donors can start paying them on Wednesday.
Municipal donation campaigns to ease the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have recently caused a rift between the central government and municipalities, particularly those held by the opposition such as İstanbul and Ankara.
President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan launched a nationwide solidarity campaign while his interior ministry prevented municipalities from collecting such donations. The state-owned Vakıfbank blocked the İstanbul Municipality’s accounts.
Since the controversy, opposition-led municipalities have been developing alternative methods for action during the outbreak.
