News Daily Digital Desk: Two chairs in front of the eyes. But three people have entered the hall. It was seen that two of them were sitting in a male chair. The woman stood in the middle. In the suddenness of the incident, the national phrase ‘aan’ came out of his mouth. The first woman to stand was Ursula von der Leyen, the first female president of the European Commission. He did not get a seat! The incident sparked a storm of condemnation on social media. The question is, did she not get a chair as a woman? The question also arises as to why the men sat down with a woman standing.

The debate over why the meeting was replaced by two chairs instead of three has escalated. Although the European Commission has condemned the incident, Turkey has so far refrained from commenting on it. But even though they did not comment, netizens have been vocal. Trending on Twitter is #GiveHerASeat. Many have taken Charles Michael to task. According to them, Michael should have stood still until the third chair was brought.
A spokesman for the European Commission condemned the incident, saying: “The president of the commission is shocked by the situation. It becomes clear in the video. The protocol should have been the same as that of the President of the European Council. ”
