Newly-elected Swedish minister sets Turkish hearts aflutter on Twitter
ISTANBULSweden’s newly-elected Health Minister Gabriel Wikström set hearts aflutter by posting a tweet written in Turkish on Oct. 14, conveying thanks to his followers from Turkey.
“Welcome to my followers from Turkey and thank you,” the 29-year-old Wikström posted.
The good-looking Wikström has become something of a sensation among Turkish teens since he was named as a minister in the new Swedish government headed by Prime Minister Stefan Loefven.
He is one of the youngest members of the new cabinet, which also includes Mehmet Kaplan, who is of Turkish origin and who was announced as Sweden’s city planning and environment minister.
