Türkiye Cümhuriyeti
  • S. H. Steinberg
Part of the The Statesman’s Yearbook book series (SYBK)


In November, 1922, a change of capital importance took place in the internal economy of Turkey. Up to that time Constantinople (now called Istanbul) continued to be the residence of the Sultan, and a government deriving its authority from him still existed there. This government, however, exerted no effective power outside Constantinople, the immediate surroundings of the capital and another small area adjoining yanakkale on the Dardanelles. Except for the small areas mentioned above, the whole of Asia Minor was under the authority of the de facto government set up at Angora (now called Ankara) in April, 1920, under the name of the ‘Government of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey.’ On 1 November, 1922, the Grand National Assembly voted a resolution declaring that the office of Sultan had ceased to exist and providing that the office of Caliph, which ha,d hitherto been vested in the person of the Sultan, should be filled by election from among the Princes of the House of Osman. Previous to this the Angora Government had made preparations not only to take delivery of Eastern Thrace from the Greek occupying authorities in accordance with the military convention concluded at Mudanya on 11 October, 1922, but also to take over the administration of Constantinople whenever an opportunity offered. On 4 November, 1922, the administration of Constantinople passed into the hands of the Angora Government. The same day the Grand Vizier, Tewfik Pasha, presented the resignation of the Constantinople Cabinet to the Sultan.
