New rules for election candidates?

 

A chara, – Political commentators are generally agreed that recent anti-migrant, anti-minority rhetoric from election candidates is planned, purposeful and pernicious. I would agree.

In many debates it has been said that election candidates should be held to higher scrutiny.

Is it time therefore, for specific and meaningful anti-discrimination legislation for election candidates? – Yours, etc,
