Parliament, where Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan's AK Party has a majority, voted in favour of the articles, which allow the telecommunications authority to block access to material within four hours without obtaining a prior court order.
The move coincides with a graft inquiry, portrayed by Erdogan as a "judicial coup" plot, which has prompted the government to reassign thousands of police officers and more than 200 prosecutors and judges.
The articles are part of a package of laws that still have to be adopted as a whole. Once it has, the bill will be sent to President Abdullah Gul for his approval. (Writing by Daren Butler, editing by Elizabeth Piper)
