Erdogan to lift state of emergency in Turkey - source

Turkish President Tayyip Recep Erdogan decided not to extend emergency rule when the current three-month period expires in July.

Erdogan and his alliance partner, the national MHP leader Devlet Bahceli, held a meeting yesterday. Sources have said Erdogan could give the MHP cabinet posts, rewarding their support for his AK Party in parliament.

"In the talks, agreement was reached not to extend the state of emergency," the Sabah newspaper said without providing details.

The state of emergency has been in place since after an attempted coup in July 2016 and has been extended every three months since then. Erdogan said this month it would be lifted if he won the June 24 elections.
