Germany's first black MP has said his landmark election has confirmed its transformation into a tolerant and open democracy but warned the country desperately needs to establish a new global identity.
Charles Huber, a former television detective, told The Daily Telegraph that Germany had reached a historic milestone by returning two black MPs in Sunday's general election. Mr Huber, a Christian Democrat, is entering parliament alongside Karambla Diably from the Social Democrats.
"If we talk about 20 years ago Germany has changed a lot for the positive and I think we are a very tolerant society," he said. "I feel very much integrated. People have come up and said you have different ideas, you see things from a different perspective." The 57-year old has been a trailblazer for German diversity since he first hit TV screens in 1986 as detective Henry Johnston in the hit TV series The Old Fox.
