44th government of Turkey

The 44th government of Turkey (20 September 1980 – 13 December 1983) was a technocratic government in the history of Turkey.

The elections

The 43rd government of Turkey came to an end because of the 1980 Turkish coup d'état. Parliament was dismissed and a technocratic government was formed. The prime minister was Bülent Ulusu, a retired admiral and the ex-commander of the Turkish navy, but the majority of the ministers were civilian technocrats.
