  • It's been quite a journey for Syrian migrant Tariq Dallas.

  • Almost six years ago, he was fleeing military conscription in Syria, and now he's trying to win a seat in Germany's parliament.

  • A loss drifted across the Aegean in a rubber boat before walking most of the way from Athens to Vienna.

  • He plans to run for the Greens in a former coal mining region of western Germany in a national election in September.

  • His candidacy is dependent on his application for German citizenship being approved.

  • When he arrived in Germany in 2015, he felt safe for the first time in years.

  • But he was shocked at what awaited him a bed in a gym alongside 16 other refugees where he was prohibited from working and not given lessons in German.

  • My perspective, my perspective as someone affected by all this was missing in politics.

  • No one represents me.

  • So I co founded a political group of refugees and we carried out several actions.

  • Now he has a platform, a loss, plans to run on issues that will improve the situations for other refugees.

  • The refugees face systemic discrimination in this society.

  • They are affected by racism and boy laws on asylum and residence.

  • Those are experiences that refugees share, and I want to work on bringing about changes in these areas to have a village, Michigan OH Anderson.

  • The Greens say a loss would be the first refugee elected to the federal parliament.

  • Opinion polls put the left leaning Green's second behind Angela Merkel's conservative bloc.
