Celal Kılıçdaroğlu (born April 8, 1954; Ballıca, Nazımiye – died November 18, 2022, İzmit) is one of Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu's brothers. He is known for his opposing discourses to his older brother Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu.

Celal Kılıçdaroğlu was born in Ballıca village of Nazımiye district of Tunceli on April 8, 1954 as the youngest of seven children of land registry officer Kamer Bey and housewife Yemuş Hanım in an Alevi family. The family's previous surname 'Karabulut' was changed to 'Kılıçdaroğlu' by his father in the 1950s because everyone in the village they lived in had the same surname. He completed primary and secondary school in Patnos. While he was studying at high school in Patnos, his music teacher dropped Kılıçdaroğlu from class because he laughed at those who sang folk songs before him. Celal Kılıçdaroğlu, who showed his report card to his father, should I take the make-up exam? she asked. When his father said you know, he decided to drop out of high school. He started his career as a seasonal worker in Tunceli State Hydraulic Works, where he worked for 1982 months in 6. He completed his 20-month military service in Mamak and Patnos. Later, Celal Kılıçdaroğlu, who moved next to his brother Ali Kılıçdaroğlu in Kocaeli, worked in construction works. In 1992, he started to work as a foreman in Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality, where his older brother worked as the zoning manager. He worked here until 2007, when he retired. Kılıçdaroğlu then went to İzmir and started to work as a guard in the Seydi Baba Tomb and Recreation Area Project. Kılıçdaroğlu, who was fired from this job due to media reports, started to work as a watchman in a construction allegedly belonging to the CHP municipality.

Kılıçdaroğlu, who settled in Kuşadası in 2015, started to run a cafe in his wife's nephew's hostel.

Kılıçdaroğlu, whose political views started to change in 2016, started a hunger strike claiming that his elder brother Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu had connections with the Gülen Movement, and made a statement saying: Let my brother go, let Gülen take his surname. Afterwards, he started a sit-in in Didim City Square, saying “Our President Erdogan is an Atatürk”. Thereupon, Celal Kılıçdaroğlu was sent to discipline with a definite expulsion request from the CHP. At the FMC meeting, he announced that he resigned from the CHP after being disciplined with a definite expulsion request. In 2017, Celal Kılıçdaroğlu's children petitioned for their father to be appointed as 'guardian'. Kılıçdaroğlu supported the AK Party's yes campaign on March 6, 2017. On January 9, 2017, Celal Kılıçdaroğlu went to the party's headquarters to become a member of the AK Party, but the AK Party announced that the application could not be accepted for ethical reasons. On November 25, 2017, on his way home, he lost his balance and fell to the ground, breaking his leg. He congratulated the perpetrators who physically attacked Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu on April 22, 2019.
