Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan returned to the campaign trail on Saturday after falling sick throughout a stay TV broadcast Tuesday night time.
Erdoğan had canceled public appearances for 3 days, after coming down with what Turkish Health Minister Fahrettin Koca later stated was gastroenteritis.
But on Saturday, the Turkish president appeared at an Istanbul aviation pageant, flanked by Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Libyan Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah, AFP reported.
His sickness got here at an unlucky time for Erdoğan, who’s going through a tough battle for re-election when Turkey heads to the polls on May 14.
Erdoğan, who has been in energy since 2003 as prime minister and president, is polling neck-and-neck with opposition chief Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, in line with POLITICO’s Poll of Polls.
