The Yön circle actually doubted that a radical reform programme would be implemented by the current government, where the majority was held by the conservatives. However, their hopes still rested in the government as it was led by the elderly İsmet İnönü – the commander and victor of the West Front during the Independence War and one of the main founders of the republic – and therefore one of the most prestigious members of the revolutionary civil and military intelligentsia cadre. Yön tried to influence Prime Minister İnönü directly through various editorials37 to convince him not to seek the support of the merchants and local gentry within the party to implement a reform programme, but to rely on the vigorous forces, with the armed forces as its most important or powerful constituent.
As long as these strata were conscious of their strength, they could prolong their independence.
This was the main role delegated to the armed forces, to support or push the present government into carrying out radical reforms. Thus, Yön tried to persuade the CHP in government and the bureaucrats and ex-MBK members now in parliament as life-time senators on the one hand to prepare a reform programme, and on the other hand to unite opponents around this reform programme. According to Yön, the opponents were the progressives (military, workers, intellectuals and bureaucrats), the vigorous forces versus the reactionary forces of the ağas, bourgeoisie, local gentry and their political representatives who supported the status quo.
