57th government of Turkey

The 57th government of Turkey (28 May 1999 – 18 November 2002) was a coalition government led by Bülent Ecevit of Democratic Left Party (DSP).

Background

The number of seats gained by the most successful party in the elections held on 18 April 1999 was only 136 out of 550. Thus, at least three parties had to form the government. Ecevit asked Motherland Party (ANAP) and Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) to participate in the government.

The government

In the list below, the serving period of cabinet members who served only a part of the cabinet's lifespan are shown in the column "Notes". The main reason for the excessive number of changes in the seats was the formation of a new party. A group of MPs split off from DSP to form the New Turkey Party, and they resigned from their seats in the government. Also, according to the Turkish constitution, some members of the government were replaced by independent members before the elections.

Aftermath

The government ended because of the elections held in 2002.
