President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said he cancelled his scheduled campaign rallies on April 26 due to health reasons, ahead of landmark May 14 elections.

"Today, I will rest at home with the advice of my doctors," Erdoğan wrote on his Twitter account.

Late on April 25, Erdoğan cut short a live TV interview during which he said he felt sick due to an upset stomach. 

Erdoğan was due to hold rallies in three different cities on April 26 and will be replaced by Vice President Fuat Oktay.
