Finland: Islamic party working on collecting signatures

See also the report from Tundra Tabloids.


The Islamic party in Finland, which is headquartered in downtown Helsinki, is currently soliciting support in order to make it into the political party register. The Islamists say they have garnered 3,500 signatures so far. But before becoming a full-fledged political party, the Islamists must meet the requirements for becoming a registered association.

Abdullah Tammi, chair of the Finnish Islamic Party, says the association's paperwork has been handed in, and that the party is now waiting for an official decision.

Five thousand signatures are needed to qualify as a political party.

The Islamic Party will unlikely be able to register as a party for next month's elections. Tammi will, however, run for office on his own.
