"Anything can happen when it is mixed. We have received complaints from families who asked us to intervene and it is our duty to intervene," he said.

"The values I hold on to do not allow such a thing," said the Turkish premier.

Erdogan first floated the idea at a closed-door meeting with lawmakers from his ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) last weekend.

"Female and male students cannot live in the same house," he was quoted as saying by the local media. "That is contrary to our structure, which is conservative-democratic."

He also said "this has nothing to do with interfering life style".

I guess some Turkish politicians don't want a repeat of the protests.
