Erdoğan back on the campaign trail after falling ill earlier this week

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan returned to the campaign trail on Saturday after falling sick during a live TV broadcast Tuesday night.

Erdoğan had canceled public appearances for three days, after coming down with what Turkish Health Minister Fahrettin Koca later said was gastroenteritis.

But on Saturday, the Turkish president appeared at an Istanbul aviation festival, flanked by Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Libyan Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah, AFP reported.

His illness came at an unfortunate time for Erdoğan, who’s facing a tough battle for re-election when Turkey heads to the polls on May 14.

Erdoğan, who has been in power since 2003 as prime minister and president, is polling neck-and-neck with opposition leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, according to POLITICO’s Poll of Polls.
