40th government of Turkey
The 40th government of Turkey (21 June 1977 – 21 July 1977) was a short term (one month) government that governed Turkey in 1977. It was a minority government of Republican People's Party (CHP) led by Bülent Ecevit.
In the elections held on 5 June 1977, CHP received 41% (highest percentage CHP ever reached after 1950) of the vote and became the first party. However, in the parliament, CHP gained only 213 seats out of 450. Other parties were reluctant to form a coalition with CHP. However, Ecevit, confident of his prestige, tried a minority government.
In the voting on 21 July, the government lost a vote of confidence (217 vs 229).
