The Sixth Ottoman Parliament was held between 12 January-18 March 1920. There were 158 deputies. The parliament was forced to shut down on 19 March 1920 when Allied Powers occupied Istanbul. Thus, in history it is regarded as the “Last Ottoman Parliament”. However, its approval of the Misak-ı Millî (National Pact) with the Turkish revolutionaries in Ankara created opportunity for Allied Powers to occupy the city on 16 March. Several MPs were arrested and deported, as a result Sultan Mehmed VI dissolved Parliament on 11 April. Shortly after the occupation of Istanbul most of the deputies had joined the parliament which was formed in Ankara.
In the EUROsimA 2018, the delegates will be assigned as Deputies all around Anatolia. They will try to change the destiny of the Ottoman Empire by making decisions to adapt to the set of events which the empire was going through.
