On Tuesday evening, the current Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, participated in a live press conference on Turkish Channel 7, and in the middle of the broadcast, strange muffled sounds were heard from his microphone, before the program was interrupted.
Many viewers had time to worry before Erdoğan returned to the studio and apologized. The president explained that he had been suffering from stomach problems as a result of the intense campaign period.
– It’s normal that we have such problems from time to time with this fully booked schedule, the president said on Channel 7 before responding to a final question from reporters.
Announce then Presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said everything was fine and that Wednesday’s campaign program had been reformed.
“Thank God our president is doing well,” Kalin wrote on Twitter Tuesday night.
But that did not appear to be the case, as all Erdogan’s events planned for Wednesday morning were cancelled.
“Today I will stay at home and rest at the request of my doctors. Unfortunately, we will not be able to see each other in Kirikkale, Yozgat and Sivas,” Erdogan wrote on his Twitter account.
He also wrote, “God willing,” the president will resume his election campaign tomorrow.
Elections for both Parliament and President will be held in Türkiye on May 14.
