SYDNEY, Australia -- Former Guantanamo Bay inmate Mamdouh Habib says he's no enemy of democracy. To prove it, he's standing for election at home in Australia.
On Saturday, Habib will contest the district of Auburn, a predominantly Muslim suburb of Sydney, in elections for the parliament of New South Wales, Australia's most populous state.
Wearing aviator sunglasses, a long black ponytail and a wrist band with the slogan "Change the World," Habib, 51, strikes an unlikely figure for a politician.
