Turkey's ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) has submitted a bill consisting of nine articles to regulate social media to parliament. If passed, the bill would require large social media providers to set up an office in Turkey and respond to orders to remove "offensive content" within 48 hours.
AKP Group Deputy Chair Özlem Zengin has said that "women had no name" before the AKP came to power, prompting surprise among the opposition. "Women had no name in this country until the AKP came to power. Women built the AKP and that's why we, as the women and men in the party and our President, try to make life easier for women with the works that we carry out," Zengin said in parliament.
