Salam alaikum Dear Community Members,
Hope you are all keeping safe and healthy.
Elections for the Executive Committee of the Council of Islamic Guidance were last held on June 2nd 2019. As per the constitution, the next elections are due before Sep 2nd 2021.
The current Executive Committee is working towards enabling the Election Commissioner and his team to conduct elections in a safe way. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, to minimize the health risk for voters and volunteers we are considering several options including outdoor voting.
We are committed to holding the elections, at the same time health and safety of all involved is also a top priority. With this regard, Inshallah we will be closely following provincial and Durham Health guidelines.
We remind our community members that to be eligible to vote in the upcoming elections you must have a paid membership of CIG for the year 2021 or for the year 2020. If you are interested to vote, we encourage you to become members or renew your memberships as soon as possible via contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Members in good-standing 90 days before Election date qualify to be on the electoral roll.
We pray for the health and safety of all humanity and may Allah (s.w.t.) hasten the return of Imam Mahdi (a.j.t.f.).
