The president of the European commission, Ursula von der Leyen, was momentarily left without a seat as she met with the European council president, Charles Michel and Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, in Ankara on Tuesday - triggering an avalanche of criticism.

With only two chairs available, Von der Leyen, the sole attending female leader, sat on the sofa as Erdoğan and Michel sat on the chairs. “Ehm,” she muttered, with a small gesticulation directed at the occupied seats. Michel, who had appeared to make a bee-line for the top spot next to Erdoğan as the party entered, offered little evidence of regret.
A spokesperson for Von der Leyen said: "The important thing is that the president should have been seated in exactly the same manner as the President of the European Council and the Turkish President. But ... she decided to proceed nevertheless prioritising substance over protocol."
The awkward scene was played out ahead of a three-hour meeting with Erdoğan where one of the issues raised by the EU leaders was women’s rights in light of Turkey’s withdrawal from a convention on gender-based violence.

Non credo ci sia nulla di sbagliato in questo comportamento,queste visite non sono improvvisate ed era già stato deciso chi dovesse occupare le sedie. Forse l'imbarazzo della Von Der Leyen è dovuto al fatto che non fosse stata informata,la prova è che anche il presidente della commissione si è seduto e non ha lasciato il posto. Troppo facile accusare Erdogan di maschilismo...il presidente Michel se così fosse sarebbe ancora piu colpevole del tiranno turco.

Jokes aside, there must be equal rights and lefts for women, compulsory military draft, etc. And bear in mind, if one is concerned about 'pay gap', he or she must also be concerned about life expectancy gap.

I‘m not sure what to be angry about most, the fact how disrespectful this action by Erdogan against women was or that she didn‘t insist on a chair to show him that this is not how you treat women if you wanna be part of the EU.

The issue at hand is why were there only TWO chairs and not Michel's rudeness or Erdogan's lack of knowledge of protocol. What is the intention behind the missing chair?

Quickly, go to war, because a woman had to sit on a chair. That's brutally inhumane!

0:26 Mr Cavusoglu is the vice-president of Turkey, and he also sits on the right on a chair. So this is definately not the fault of Turkey, but rather disrespectful of Mr Michel. Or they have an issue amongst themselves. So don't blame Turkey for Europe's issues. And IF that chair delibarately was given to mr Michel, then what? You want to go to war about because she had to sit on a chair?

As this protocol has been agreed in advance I see this as a power struggle between two corrupt EU "leaders" or even an attempt to portray Turkey and Erdoğan in a negative way.
