Sukhan Babayev (25 December 1910 – 28 November 1995) served as the General Secretary of the Communist Party of Turkmenistan from October 1951 until December 1958.[1]

Babayev and several political allies were fired after they advocated greater ethnic Turkmen representation in the Soviet government.[2]
