Abstract

Kâzım Karabekir Pasha, who achieved great success in the Eastern Front during the National Struggle, was elected as a deputy from Istanbul to the Second Assembly and was appointed to the First Army Inspectorate, which was established after the Eastern Front Command was abolished. Kazım Karabekir Pasha made a total of six visits to Istanbul, including two in 1923 and four in 1924, as the Deputy of Istanbul and the Inspector of the First Army. During these visits, as the Deputy of Istanbul, he held meetings to be informed about the needs of the city, participated in events organized on his behalf and supervised military units and institutions. In this process, he explained his views on political, economic and social issues as well as on the institutions he visited or supervised. These views were also influential in the Progressive Republican Party program, which was established on November 17, 1924, and of which he would assume the leadership. In this study, Kazım Karabekir Pasha's visits to Istanbul as the Deputy of Province and the Inspector of the First Army were examined. The historical chronology method was applied for this purpose. In addition to the national press, other first and second hand sources were used to contribute to the research subject.
