Provisional Government: a provisional government, consisting of a concentration of Austria's major political parties, was instituted at the beginning of both the First Republic and the Second Republic. The provisional government of the First Republic existed from October 30, 1918 until March 15, 1919, and the provisional government of the Second Republic from April 27 to December 20, 1945. In both cases the heads of government had the title State Chancellor, and the ministers the title of State Secretary, who were assisted by Under State Secretaries.

The provisional government of the Second Republic was created on April 27, 1945, when fighting was still going on in Vienna, after the three main parties (ÖVP, SPÖ, KPÖ) came to an agreement as to the division of ministerial responsibilities (April 23), and, until October 19, 1945, was only recognised by the Soviet Union. As a result of the provincial conferences held on September 24/25 and October 9/10, 1945, the provisional government was expanded to include representatives of the Western provinces which then recognised the provisional government. On November 25, 1945, the provisional government held the first general elections, which led to the formation of the Nationalrat and the Federal Government.
