Turkey could prolong the announced three-month emergency regime imposed across the country in the wake of a failed coup attempt, if it becomes necessary, Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said Saturday.

Why Turkey Suspects Washington of Playing a Part in Failed Coup
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Ankara does not plan to prolong the announced three-month emergency regime imposed across Turkey following a failed coup attempt, but may do so if it becomes necessary, Yildirim said.

“Our intention is not to extend it [the state of emergency], but it may have to be extended if such need arises,” he told the ATV television station.

On Thursday, the Turkish parliament approved a governmental decree on introduction of state of emergency for three months. The decree gives President Recep Tayyip Erdogan the ability to enact new laws bypassing the nation’s legislature and restricts public gatherings.
