At last, the deputy Minister of Health has been announced. Dr Lee Boon Chye is the MP for Gopeng in the state of Perak. He is also a Vice President of Keadilan. Being a medical doctor, this portfolio will certainly suit him well.
He did his undergraduate training at the University of Malaya, graduating in 1985. He then completed his Masters of Internal Medicine at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia in 1992. He is also a member of the Royal College of Physician, UK. At the time of joining politics, he was a cardiologist at KPJ Ipoh Specialist Hospital.
He is now into his third term as MP for Gopeng, defeating MCA candidates with increasing margins each time. In GE14, he got 62% of the votes in that constituency.
We wish him well in his new role!
