The sixth[b] government of Francisco Franco was formed on 11 July 1962.[3] It succeeded the fifth Franco government and was the Government of Spain from 11 July 1962 to 8 July 1965, a total of 1,093 days, or 2 years, 11 months and 27 days.

Franco's sixth cabinet was made up of members from the different factions or "families" within the National Movement: mainly the FET y de las JONS party—the only legal political party during the Francoist regime—the military, the Opus Dei and the National Catholic Association of Propagandists (ACNP), as well as a number of aligned-nonpartisan technocrats or figures from the civil service.[4][5]

Council of Ministers[edit]

The Council of Ministers was structured into the offices for the prime minister, the deputy prime minister and 18 ministries, including two ministers without portfolio and the office of the minister undersecretary of the presidency.[6]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ a b Does not include the Prime Minister.
  2. ^ Sources differ on the numbering, depending on whether they consider every cabinet change or just major reshuffles as giving way to a different government. In this sense, the 1962–1965 period is regarded as both the sixth and the eleventh government under Franco, depending on the source.[1][2]
