On Thursday, Ontarians will head to the polls to elect the next premier. As a youth, I have always been quite interested in politics and elections. I strive to follow election campaigns and party platforms. I even try to analyze the platforms myself and then evaluate who will be the best leader for our province. It is perplexing that many youth seem to lack interest in Canadian politics. To all those who remain undecided, I look upon the advice of the leader of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community, His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad. He states, “A person’s vote should be cast with the betterment of the nation in mind.”

As a member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community, I am not allowed to vote in Pakistan without denouncing the fundamentals of my religious beliefs. Hence, Ahmadi Muslims understand the importance of voting. I hope and pray that Ontarians can make the most appropriate choice, as they cast their ballots in the upcoming election.
