The Federation of Islamic Organisations in Europe urges voters to take part in the European Parliamentary Elections
The Federation of Islamic Organisations in Europe urges the Muslim general public in the European Union countries to participate, and cast their votes in the European Parliamentary elections.
No doubt that weighing up the manifestos of candidates and political parties, and then heading to the ballot boxes to cast votes, is an expression of awareness of citizenship and the responsibility of participation in democratic life. At the same time, the Federation articulates its disappointment at those slogans and messages promoted by some parties and candidates, which contradict common values, and the principles of mutual respect; indeed, some have reached the level of inciting hatred, and feeding divisions in societies.
