23RD GOVERNMENT OF REPUBLIC OF TURKEY
The 23rd Government of Turkey (also called as Fifth Menderes Government)served from 25 December 1957 to 27 May 1960. In Turkey, Democrat Party(DP) won the elections held on 27 October 1957, and its leader Adnan Menderes formed the government.He later won two more free elections, one in 1954 and the other in 1957.During the 10 years of his term as prime minister, the Turkish economy is claimed to have grown at an unprecedented rate of 9% per annum over his 10-year administration, a feat which had and so far has not yet been duplicated. During his tenure, Turkey was admitted to NATO. With the economic support of the United States via the Marshall Plan, agriculture was mechanized; and transport, energy, education, health care, insurance and banking progressed.
He was hanged by the military junta after the 1960 coup d'état, along with two other cabinet members, Fatin Rüştü Zorlu and Hasan Polatkan.
In ACUMUN, participants have a chance to simulate both the governance and coup d’état which ended the Menderes period. Watch out, because alternative history is always available in our conferences. If you are willing to be a part of this exciting and historical atmosphere, you are very welcomed!
