Sürücü and municipal councilors started a sit in across the party building. Many citizens joined the sit in. Sürücü stated that the government is trying to usurp the municipality which was won with a vote rate of %59,36. 
 
Sürücü said: "This is tyranny. Our mayor was taken into custody unlawfully. This is thievery, pillagei extortion.
