Turkey will end Daylight Saving Time (DST) two weeks later than normal. Clocks will be turned back one hour from 4:00 (4 am) to 3:00 (3 am) local time on Sunday, November 8, 2015.
The change of the DST date is due to Turkey's general election on November 1. The delay ensures daylight during the opening hours of the polling stations. This will make it safer for the voters, according to the Turkish authorities.
Time in Turkey
Turkey's time zone is Eastern European Time (EET) when DST is not in use. When DST is in effect, clocks are advanced to Eastern European Summer Time (EEST). The country shares its time zone (UTC+2 / UTC+3) with countries like Finland, Ukraine, Romania, and Greece.
