    Background: The caretaker Turkish Prime Minister, Mr. Bulent Ecevit, met leaders of other political parties on Saturday (21 September) to discuss holding early elections.

    Mr. Ecevit resigned as Prime Minister on Wednesday (18 September) after a disagreement with his minority coalition partners. He was asked to form a new administration by President Fahri Koruturk.

    On Saturday he met the leaders of the three other opposition parties. Only Mr. Ferruh Bozbeyli of the Democratic Party accepted the need for new elections. He said he would need until Tuesday (24 September) to consult with his party.

    If the Democratic Party and Mr. Ecevit's Republican People's Party join forces they have the necessary Parliamentary majority to vote for an early election. Observers expect the two parties to form a coalition if they can agree on a polling date.

    Mr. Ecevit wants an election in December and the Democratic Party is reported to favour a later date.

    Mr. Ecevit talked with Mr. Turhan Feyzioglu of the Republican Reliance Party and Mr. Suleyman Demiral of the Justice Party as well as Mr. Bozbeyli.

    Mr. Ecevit broke up his eight month-old coalition with National Salvation Party after seven NSP members, led by Deputy Prime Minister Necmettin Erbakan, tried to stop the Prime Minister making an official tour of Scandinavia.
