Former CHP leader Deniz Baykal back from Germany to Ankara for treatment

Deniz Baykal, the former leader of Turkey’s main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) and current MP, has returned to Ankara from Germany, where he was receiving medical treatment following a stroke he suffered in October 2017.

Baykal had a stroke on Oct. 16, 2017 in Ankara after a blood clot in a major artery going to his brain.

He received intensive care for 51 days in Ankara’s İbn-i Sina Hospital, after which he traveled to Munich for medical treatment in December.

Baykal’s treatment was completed in Munich and he arrived in Ankara on March 20 in a private jet provided by the Health Ministry. His treatment will now continue at the Turkish capital’s Gülhane Hospital.
