Turkey Daylight Saving Time

Turkey will continue to implement daylight savings time throughout the entire year and will not roll back its clocks an hour on Oct. 30, according to a cabinet decision announced in the Official Gazette on Sept. 7.

According to a cabinet decision taken upon a notice by Turkey’s Energy Ministry, daylight savings time will be used every year and winter time will no longer be implemented. The purpose of the practice was noted as benefiting more from daylight.

Turkey moved to daylight savings time this year on March 27 at 3:00 a.m. local time, as clocks were wound forward one hour.

Daylight savings time was slated to end on Oct. 30 this year, as clocks across the country would have been turned back one hour at 4:00 a.m. local time.
