ISTANBUL (CIHAN)- Istanbul lawmaker of the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) Mevlut AslanoIlu, known for his colorful protests in the Parliament, died early on Friday. He was 62.

Family of AslanoIlu called an ambulance when they realized that the CHP deputy was undergoing a heart attack while he was asleep in his house in DenizkIkler neighborhood of Istanbul’s AvcIlar district. AslanoIlu was taken to Private AvcIlar Hospital, but he died before he arrived at the hospital.
