Decision of the 2nd Extraordinary Session of the Council of Ministers
The Council of Ministers, in its second emergency meeting today, discussed and passed a resolution regarding the expiration of the state of emergency proclamation No. 5/2022 to protect the country’s existence and sovereignty.
The Council of Ministers declared a state of emergency on January 26, 2012, and the proclamation was presented to the House of Peoples’ Representatives by Proclamation No. 1264. / 2022 is approved and is currently in operation. However, it was necessary to shorten the state of emergency by six months, as the situation that made it necessary to declare a state of emergency had changed and the threat had reached the point where normal law enforcement could be prevented and controlled.
Therefore, in accordance with the provisions of Article 11 (2) of Proclamation No. 1264/2022, the House of Peoples’ Representatives has the power to shorten the period of six months before the expiration of the six-month period if the circumstances leading to the declaration of a state of emergency are changed. The Council of Ministers, after deliberating on the matter, decided to submit the proposal to the House of Peoples’ Representatives.
