Diaby SPD candidate Karamba Diaby in constituency of Halle/Saale for Germany general election
A combination photo of candidate Karamba Diaby of the Social Democratic Party (SPD) in Halle/Saale walking past the Reichstag, the seat of Germany's lower house of parliament, in Berlin, August 18, 2013. The 52-year-old chemist and ecologist was born in Senegal, but dislikes the attention people pay to his origin. "The focus on my skin colour does bother me, because I expect a normal situation, that people talk to me as someone who is fighting for a seat in parliament in order to be a worthy representative of my region," he said in a Reuters TV interview. At the same time he highlights his adopted home country's shortfalls in providing equal opportunities to non-native Germans. "The fact that my candidacy has drawn so much attention has little to do with me, it is due to the fact that the representation of people with a migration background, their participation in society and politics … is much less developed than in other immigration countries," he said. German Chancellor and Christian Democratic Union (CDU) leader Angela Merkel is seeking a third term in a parliamentary election on September 22, 2013. Picture taken August 18.
