By Kevin Stoda, Germany
Philipp Roesler, born Khan Hooa in Vietnam, has been selected to become the Minister of Health Care during this second term of governance under Chancellor Angela Merkel in Germany starting this very week.
Roesler is the first South-East-Asian-born German to be appointed to such a high post in Germany. Roessler is an eye doctor by profession and is known as a man-of-the-people, especially due to the tone he displays when he speaks. Moreover, Roesler is quite able to take complicated themes and articulate them in simple & understandable ways for a mass audience. Roesler is only 36 years old and is thus the youngest cabinet member as well.
