Universal House of Justice elected

Bahai World News Service, April 30

The results of the election of the nine members of the Universal House of Justice have been announced. Those elected for the next five-year term are Paul Lample, Firaydoun Javaheri, Payman Mohajer, Gustavo Correa, Shahriar Razavi, Stephen Birkland, Stephen Hall, Chuungu Malitonga, and Ayman Rouhani. Of these, Chuungu Malitonga, and Ayman Rouhani are new members: both are Counsellors serving at the International Teaching Centre. This means that, as in previous years, all members of the Universal House of Justice are drawn from the corps of Counsellors at the ITC.

  1. With the election of the Universal House of Justice at Ridvan 2013, an election marking the 50th anniversary of this Supreme Body, as it is often called, at the apex of Baha’i administration, with the latest Ridvan message published this week and, with the release this same week of a film about the Baha’i culture of learning, readers here might find my 530 page book on the new Baha’i culture, this new paradigm as it is often referred to, useful.

    This book sets both this 2013 Ridvan message and the film in a helpful context, providing, as the message and the film do, a continuing exegisis on developments in the global Baha’i community in relation to this new paradigm of learning and growth. Go to the following link to skim, to scan, or to read the full text of this book updated to 1/5/’13: http://bahai-library.com/price_culture_learning_paradigm

  2. According to the Bahai World News service delegates came from 157 countries, with 1000+ attending, 400 absentee ballots. That figures, 157 x 9 = 1413.

    So far so good

    Now for the election report

    “More than 1,500 ballots were cast yesterday for membership of the
    council that serves as the head of the Baha’i Faith. Those elected for
    the next five-year term are Paul Lample, Firaydoun Javaheri, Payman
    Mohajer, Gustavo Correa, Shahriar Razavi, Stephen Birkland, Stephen
    Hall, Chuungu… … ”

    Interesting that. The words are copied from the Bahai News Service election report.

    Evidence, no doubt, of the participation of (about) 95 delegates from the Concourse on High.
