Rauf Onursal's Works in Izmır Munıcipalıty And Its Term (1950-1954)
Turkey, half a century ago has entered into an election atmosphere with the participation of
multiple parties for the first time. In this election, the majority of the people who took the vote was the
Democratic Party led by Celal Bayar and Adnan Menderes, who came out of the CHP. The same
electorate used the DP in local elections. DP municipality was mostly active in poor neighborhoods,
which were somewhat forgotten and where services did not go sufficiently. This paved the way for
the services that are appreciated by the public. Rauf Onursal, the first mayor of the DP in İzmir, tried
to meet the basic needs of poor districts such as roads, water and electricity with a populist approach
and realized many projects during his time. These projects are still showing their existence even today.
The most concrete example of this is the Variant Road that connects the mansion and Eşrefpaşa road.
Although Rauf is an Honorary Millet deputy and the mayors who succeeded him after he left
office, they did not have as controversial terms as Honorary. In this study, the activities of Rauf
Onursal between the years of 1950-1954 during the mayoral period will be tried to be dealt with by
giving profit and loss ratios.
