The 50th government of Turkey came to an end because Deniz Baykal of CHP asked for an earlier date for the scheduled elections. Prime minister Tansu Çiller tried a minority government, but the 51st government of Turkey could not receive the vote of confidence. Tansu Çiller accepted Deniz Baykal's proposal, and the 52nd government was formed as a caretaker government until the elections. In the government, most of the DYP ministers kept the same seats they held in the 51st government.
