The decision came in a statement from the bank’s Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) meeting — the fourth of twelve meetings scheduled for 2020.
The Anadolu Agency survey of 15 economists expected on Monday an average fall of 50 basis points on the one-week repo rate, with the lowest estimate at 25 basis points, and the highest at 100.
