Turkey's parliament became the scene of a fight once again on Dec. 16, with women deputies trying to attack each other, the daily Sözcü reported on Dec. 16.
The brawl erupted during budget talks in parliament after ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) deputy Bahar Ayvazoğlu targeted main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) lawmakers and its leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu throughout her speech.
CHP Group Deputy Chair Özgür Özel asked Deputy Parliament Speaker Haydar Akar to give two minutes to speak to all CHP deputies to respond to Ayvazoğlu's remarks.
Upon Akar's acceptance of the request, tension rose in parliament. A brawl initially erupted between deputies of the CHP and far-right Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), which was followed by AKP deputies Ayvazoğlu and Ceyda Bölünmez approaching CHP lawmakers Burcu Köksal and Gülizar Biçer Karaca to attack.
Male deputies were seen trying to break up the brawl, as Akar asked all lawmakers to pay attention to their speeches.
