Turkey is a stable and prosperous democratic republic.
What is happening in Turkey in 2005CE
In 1960 a deteriorating economic situation in Turkey brought about a military coup. The army leaders introduced a new constitution, and then withdrew from politics.
In 1970, with political violence and social disorder mounting, the army again stepped in, only to withdraw from politics again in 1973; they returned again in 1980, after a decade of weak parliamentary government. The army leaders then introduced a new constitution, giving wide powers to the president. A period of political stability and economic prosperity has followed, but a Kurdish separatist movement has been an increasing cause for concern. This, together with the activities of militant Islamic groups, has posed a challenge for the Turkish government. Since 2002 a mildly Islamic party under Recep Erdogan has continued to give the country stability and growth.
