Participation of the Baha’is in the Elections

Although Baha’is have not participated in the elections in the past, and did not take part in the voting, and Baha’is, according to the instructions of Akka, are restricted from interfering in political affairs, it has been reported that it is possible that Baha’is in this round [of the elections], will be allowed to engage in political activities and the voting for parliamentary representatives and for certain candidates.
