Shouldn't "A leader must be a good person" also be accepted?

A leader must be a good person. The word man is not in the vietnamese sentence

Đúng vậy ! Vì sao nhà lãnh đạo phải là nam giới. Các quốc gia kể cả VN đều có nữ là nhà lãnh đạo ! Hay mặc định tiếng Anh là nam khi nói về nhà lãnh đạo, phi hành gia.

~ Why leaders must be men. The countries including Vietnam have female leaders ! Or, by default, English is male when talking about leaders, astronauts.

"A good person" Or "A good human" ?

Person. "Human" sounds awkward.

If you want to use human you would say human being.

No, you wouldn't. Human is enough but person is much more common.

3 months later and now it sounds correct. My ears must be adjusting.
