Turkey Extends State Of Emergency For 3 More Months

Turkish Parliament Monday ratified the prime ministry motion, extending the ongoing state of emergency in the country for three more months.

The extension will become effective from Wednesday at 1.00 a.m (2200 GMT Tuesday).

The motion was ratified by means of the affirmative votes of the ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party and the opposition Nationalist Movement Party (MHP).

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Prime Minister Binali Yildirim and MHP leader Devlet Bahceli had signaled in their speeches earlier that the state of emergency would be extended.

According to the Turkish Constitution, a state of emergency can be declared for a maximum period of six months.

Turkey declared a state of emergency on July 20, 2016, after the defeated coup of July 15, 2016 attempted by Fetullah Terrorist Organization.

At least 250 people were martyred and nearly 2,200 others were injured in the coup attempt.

During the state of emergency, the Cabinet has the right to issue statutory decrees under the president of the republic without regard to routine procedures and restrictions in Article 91 of the country's Constitution.

These decrees are first published in the official gazette and then submitted to parliament for ratification. -
