The state of emergency, which was imposed after the failed coup in Turkey two years ago, came to an end today. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan declared emergency on 20th July, 2016, five days after warplanes bombed Ankara and clashes broke out in Istanbul that claimed 249 lives.

The state-run Anadolu news agency said, the measure, which normally lasts three months, was extended seven times, and it ended today, after the government decided not to ask that it be extended for an eighth time.

The state of emergency saw the detention of some 80,000 people and about double that number sacked from jobs in public institutions.
The Opposition fears that the emergency will be replaced by even more repressive legislative measures.
