Letter of 21 October 1932

21 October 1932

To an individual believer

Dear Mr. ...:

1.The Universal House of Justice has provided clarification on this issue: “It is clear from further elucidations given by Shoghi Effendi that Bahá’ís may vote for political posts only when they can do so upon a non-party line, without affiliating themselves with any political party or organization.” (Letter dated 13 September 1998 to the National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of Canada)  [ Back To Reference]
