The elections in the II. Constitutional Period had the characteristics of pluralistic participation. Just like how this situation played an important role in the development of democratic political culture, it brought with it a new entity. This process started with the 1908 elections and concluded, holding four general elections in 1912, 1914, and 1919. The Parliaments of the Constitutional Period have left rather deep marks on the history of the Turkish parliament in every respect. Being chosen from the different cities of the Ottoman State, the deputies coming to the Parliament shed light on the political activities they had done and on the ideal life, education, laws, elections, political, social, and economic structures of the period. The purpose of this study is to discuss the parliamentary activities in the second period of the Yozgat deputy Kinacizade Shakir Bey, who held office in the Ottoman Chamber of Deputies that formed as a result of the general elections held in the II. Constitutional Period. Shakir Bey, whose speeches have been identified especially within his legislative activities, left important marks with his activities in the Parliament and revealed his own thoughts and solution proposals about the country’s problems. The main sources of this study benefited from the Official Meeting Reports of the Chamber of Deputies found in the GNAT archives, Parliamentary albums, and other information and documents of the constitutional period.
