Newly 'Elected' UHJ - 2018


As stated (predicted) two months ago, Juan Francisco Mora has been elected to the Universal House of Justice.

For those who may or may not be following the Bahá'í History blog, I will refer you to the post from April 22, 2018.

On April 22, the Bahá'í World News Service carried an article announcing the retirement of two members of the Universal House of Justice, Gustavo Correa and Firaydoun Javaheri.

The prediction made there on April 22 was...

Juan Francisco Mora and either Praveen Kumar Mallik or Andrej Donoval will be the next members elected to the Universal House of Justice.

Juan Francisco Mora has been on the International Teaching Centre since 2008.

Praveen Kumar Mallik‎ has been on the International Teaching Centre since 2010.

Andrej Donoval has been on the International Teaching Centre since 2013.

Here is the newest prediction: Andrej Donoval will be the next member elected to the Universal House of Justice.

What amazes me is that when describing the election process, the Bahá'í World News Service uses terms like "in a rarefied and spiritual atmosphere", "following prayers," "Delegates have a period of spiritual preparation before participating in the Convention. This entails time to pray and meditate in the Sacred Shrines in Haifa and Akka as well as to visit historical Baha’i holy places." Yet despite these lofty descriptions, any idiot like me can easily predict the next step in the process.

The Bahá'í World News Service also notes "Baha’i elections are distinctive for their lack of nominations and campaigning. The delegates to the International Convention, made up of the membership of all national Baha’i assemblies, vote by confidential ballot for the nine individuals they believe are best suited for membership on the House of Justice."

As I have noted previously, there is nothing unique in this voting system as it is essentially indistinguishable from the various versions of council democracies or people's democracies, which is the electoral voting model that still exists in Cuba.

In a short while, the Universal House of Justice will appoint to the International Teaching Centre Juan Francisco Mora and Praveen Malik's replacements. Any male replacements will in due time be elected to the Universal House of Justice. And these replacements will themselves undoubtedly come from the ranks of the Continental Boards of Counselors.
