The government of Luis Carrero Blanco was formed on 12 June 1973, following his appointment and swearing-in as Prime Minister of Spain on 9 June by Head of State Francisco Franco, who for the first time since 1938 had chosen to detach the figure of the head of government from that he held of head of state.[1][2][3] It succeeded the eighth Franco government and was the Government of Spain from 12 June to 31 December 1973, a total of 202 days, or 6 months and 19 days.

Carrero Blanco's 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 and the Opus Dei, as well as a number of aligned-nonpartisan technocrats or figures from the civil service.[4][5] The government would be disestablished following the assassination of Luis Carrero Blanco in Madrid by the Basque separatist group ETA on 20 December 1973, only six months into his term, being temporarily replaced in acting capacity by his deputy Torcuato Fernández-Miranda until a Carlos Arias Navarro was chosen as new prime minister.[6][7] Under the regulations of the Organic Law of the State of 1967, all government ministers were automatically dismissed on 31 December upon the appointment of the new prime minister, but remained in acting capacity until the next government was sworn in.[8][9]

Council of Ministers

The Council of Ministers was structured into the offices for the prime minister, the deputy prime minister and 19 ministries.
