Social Network Providers Targeted by New Wave of Regulations in Turkey

A draft law targeting social network providers (SNPs) has continued to gain traction after being submitted last month to The Grand National Assembly of Turkey (Parliament) by Halil Öztürk, an MP from the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP). MHP has been supportive of President Erdoğan and established an electoral alliance (People’s Alliance) with the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) in 2018. To pass into law, the draft will need the majority support of members present for its reading (AKP and MHP currently hold 291 and 49 of the 600 seats respectively). While no date has yet been published for the reading, the forthcoming regulation represents another significant push for greater State oversight of the digital media space in Turkey.
