    The PAMELA experiment has recently reported that the e+/(e+ +e-) increases apparently over 10 GeV. The electron (and positron) excess, furthermore, is observed at energies between 300 and 800 GeV in ATIC and PPB-BETS. Since these results are hardly understood in consistent only by an acceleration at SNR, many papers indicate new sources, such as WIMP and/or nearby pulsars, have been published. We have carried out a calculation of the cosmic-ray electrons and positrons by using the GALPROP code to understand these results. We try to determine an optimum candidate of the WIMP model by comparing to the observed spectra. We test KK particles which dilectly produced an electron and positron pair by annihilation or decay. A wino-like particle is also examined. It is shown the annihilation of KK particle is compatible with the present data. The CALET mission is planned for searching the nearby cosmic ray sources and the dark matter candidates at energies over 100 GeV. We will present an expected capability of CALET to distinguish the models by the excellent energy resolution over 100 GeV (∼ 2%) for the 5-year observation.
