This paper explores whether forms of government affected economic and fiscal outputs in Turkey during the period of 1950 to 2014. Based on the issues of decision-making and accountability, governments are classified as a one party/coalition government. At the same time, coalition governments are separated according to the ideological distance of coalition parties. It has not been found that forms of governments affect economic stability and fiscal discipline. The results show that economic and fiscal recovery observed during the terms of miscellaneous governments are not affected by forms of governments, but are affected by stabilization programs.
