This thesis questions the long embraced assumption in Turkey which is based on the premise that single-party period of Turkey between 1925-1946 was because of the "conditions of the era." By giving examples from advocates of single party, I am arguing against the exigency of a single-party period and I am offering that it was purely based on preference. By going into the subheadings of single-party advocacy, I am analyzing each of them and trying to show that as a whole the argument that conditions of the era necessitated a single-party regime lacks factual basis.
