Kars’ fate, experiencing hardships during the transition period from Ottoman Empire to the Republican Era begins to change after 1923 and People’s Republic Party (CHP/F) in Kars plays a major role until 1950. As for DP, which inititiates organizational efforts in 1946 in all the other cities, remains too slow in establishing its organizations in Kars. DP, which cannot join other elections held in Kars up to 1950, cannot obtain any noticeable achievement in 1950’s elections. While DP proves to get the majority of the votes in several districts, it fails to have the desired result in the others. The most significant factor for this failure arises from the fact that DP cannot get organized because of the features peculiar to Kars. As for People’s Republic Party (CHP/F), which determines its candidates by analyzing the public, wins the elections in Kars.
