Together with Van, Manisa, Aydın, Balıkesir, Muğla, Tekirdağ, Kahramanmaraş, Denizli,Hatay, Şanlıurfa and Trabzon are on the list. Amendment to the Metropolitan Municipality Law, the borders of the province will be accepted as the boundaries of the metropolitan municipality. Erciş also will be entered into the borders of Van Metropolitan Municipality along with Van. To become a metropolitan, the number of population should be 750 thousand within the borders of the province. Malatya has missed the opportunity with 10 thousand. AK Party Deputy Chairman Hüseyin Tanrıverdi reminded CHP’s bill of law on making Erciş a province. “Our pledge is to make Van a metropolitan, therefore, there is no need to make Erciş a province. Once Van is a Metropolitan Municipality, Erciş will also be in metropolitan borders.
