Mahmut Sadi Irmak

Statesman, prime minister, scientist (B. May 15th, 1904 in Seydişehir / Konya – D. November 11th, 1990, Istanbul). His full name was Mahmut Sadi Irmak and he was the father of Prof. Dr. Yakut Irmak Özden and former parliamentarian Sabri Irmak. He became a biology teacher after graduating from Rüştiye (Ottoman Junior High School) and Konya Sultanisi (High School). During the time he was teaching, he studied at the Faculty of Law at İstanbul University for a while. In 1930, he graduated from Berlin University, Faculty of Medicine. He worked as an assistant in Hagen and Düsseldorf hospitals. When he returned to Turkey in 1931, he had been on duty of Ankara Government Doctors and teaching biology in Gazi Education Institute. In 1933, he was an assistant professor of physiology at the Istanbul University, Faculty of Medicine; he became a professor in 1940. He entered the parliament in 1943 by being elected as the Konya Parliamentarian from the list of CHP. At the same year, he was appointed to the Chairman of High Advisory Committee of Community Centers, then to the CHP Diyarbakır Regional Inspectorate. He was elected to the parliament from Konya in 1943. He served as the first Minister of Labour in 1945. He left the political life in 1950 and worked at the University of Munich for a while.

After being away from politics for many years, he re-entered the parliament on June, 8th 1974 by being elected as Contingent Senator by President Fahri Korutürk. In addition, he was a member of the Consultative Assembly of Konya between the years of 1981 and 1983.

By the end of the coalition government that was formed in 1974 by the presidency of the CHP leader Bülent Ecevit with the Milli Selamet Party (MSP) led by Necmettin Erbakan, a formula for the forming of a government led by Sadi Irmak emerged. Even though a "technocrats" government was formed by the premiership of Prof. Sadi Irmak on November, 17th 1974 as a result of the studies of President Korutürk in this direction and by the approval of the leaders except Necmettin Erbakan, the government crisis continued when Sadi Irmak Government got a vote of no confidence in the first voting. Although the government he formed could not get the vote of confidence, he remained in this position for four and a half months.

The Sadi Irmak government that could not be long lasting since the vast majority of the Parliamentarians didn’t support, soon afterwards left its place to the first "Milliyetçi Cephe Government" formed on March 31st 1975 by the premiership of Süleyman Demirel.

Sadi Irmak was appointed as the representative of Konya for the Advisory Council that was established on October, 15th 1981 after the September, 12th (1980) military coup and he was elected to the president of this council on October, 27th. This assignment of Irmak continued until December 4th,1983.
