Süleyman Demirel, 1962

The 32nd government of Turkey (6 March 1970 – 26 March 1971) was a government in the history of Turkey. It is also called the third Demirel government.


Justice Party (AP) had the majority in the parliament, but largely because of a split in the party, the prime minister Süleyman Demirel failed to receive the confidence vote in the interpellation voting on 11 February 1970. However, AP still had the majority, and Demirel founded the next government as well. The cabinet was almost the same as that of the previous government.

In the early 1970s, Turkey was faced with extensive urban guerrilla activities. On 12 March 1971, the army forced Demirel to resign, claiming that the government was unable to halt the terrorism. However, parliament was still functioning, so Demirel and his colleagues in the cabinet were still active as MPs.
