Migrant Candidates Face Racism in German Election

BERLIN—More German Turks will run for election this calendar year than at any time in the previous two decades, but candidates from Germany’s greatest ethnic minority say they normally face racism, underlining the complications the nation faces in integrating its assorted migrant communities.

“I had 400 campaign posters, and I think 250 of them are already destroyed with racist slurs,” reported Orkan Özdemir, a center-remaining prospect for the Berlin House of Reps, which elects its associates Sunday, the identical working day as the country’s normal election.
