The Turkish Parliament for the fourth time has extended for 90 days the state of emergency (PE) in the country imposed after a coup attempt last year, reports channel NTV on Monday.

Earlier Monday, the Turkish government sent to Parliament a request to extend the state of emergency.

The state of emergency was introduced in Turkey after the coup attempt in July last year for a period of three months. It was extended three times for a period of three months by decision of the government, approved by Parliament. The Turkish opposition, as well as a number of EU leaders have criticized the extension of state of emergency, as it is, in their opinion, threatens the rights and freedoms of citizens.
