Turkish parliament ratifies new military service law
Military service period to be reduced to 6 months under new law

By Muhammet Emin Avundukluoglu

ANKARA (AA) - Turkish parliament on Tuesday ratified a new military service law cutting the military service period in half.

A total of 335 lawmakers approved the law in the 600-seat parliament, 17 lawmakers voted against it, and two lawmakers abstained.

The new law reduces the military service period to 6 months from 12 months, which also makes the paid military permanent for those who can afford it.

The Turkish citizens will be required to undergo a one-month military training and they will be exempted from serving for the rest five months by paying 31,000 Turkish liras ($5,371) under the the new law.
