Iranian elected to presiding board of ruling German coalition party

Berlin, Dec 17, IRNA -- Iranian-born Omid Nouripour was elected to the presiding board of the Greens Party, a junior partner of the Social Democratic-led German government coalition, the daily Frankfurter Rundschau reported Tuesday.

A resident of Frankfurt, the 27-year-old Nouripour is also spokesman of the Youth Wing of the Greens Party in the southeast German state of Hesse.

A student of German language and literature, Nouripour gained prominence within the rank and file of the environmentalist and pacifist party for his stance against xenophobia and hatred of foreigners.
