Palestinian from Syria Stands in Sweden’s Parliamentary Elections in Sweden, His Daughter Runs for Municipal Council

Palestinian refugee from Syria Emil Sarsour has nominated himself in Sweden’s parliamentary elections for 2018.

Sarsour, of the Social Democratic Party, has served as the head of Federation of Immigrant Associations in Uppsala city since 2009. He is a member of the administrative board of Swedish associations. Sarsour is also the director of "Uppsala 2030" project. He has received several awards.

Born in 1945 and raised in Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian refugees, Sarsour migrated to Sweden in 1990 and started his career as a painter before he worked as a financial manager and later as a company manager and an employee at the University of Agriculture.

His daughter Dimah, born in Yarmouk Camp, is running for municipal elections on Sweden's Socialist Workers' Party.

In case Dimah wins a sit in the projected elections, slated to be held on September 9, she will be the first Arab to have won such a position in Oppsala’s municipal elections.
