On Oct. 29, 1923, commander of the War of Independence Mustafa Kemal Ataturk officially proclaimed Turkey’s status as a republic and got elected as its first president.
Celebrations this year were limited to small-scale wreath-laying ceremonies and parades in memory of the republic’s founders due to the coronavirus pandemic.
President Erdogan, accompanied by ministers and opposition leaders, paid a visit to Anıtkabir, Ataturk’s mausoleum, in the capital Ankara. He also hosted officials at the Presidential Complex.
Local administrations also organized separate events to mark the day.
