  • Description

    Turkish caretaker Prime Minister Bulent Ecevit was asked on Friday (September 20) to form a new Government. He was summoned to President Fahri Koroturk's palace in Ankara, the Turkish capital, where to President asked him to lead a new administration.

    Mr. Ecevit resigned two days earlier (September 18) when his minority Government collapsed after a spoilt between his own party -- the Republican People's Party -- and its Islamic coalition partners the National Salvation Party. The Government, which lasted eight stormy month, took Turkey into the Cyprus war -- form which Mr. Ecevit emerged a national hero.

    After Fridays' invitation to form a new administration, Mr. Ecevit told newsmen waiting in the palace grounds that he would rather go into a wider coalition, leading up to general elections alter this year, than preside over a minority Government like the last one.
