A Muslim party will candidate to Parlament Elections

14 August 2012

The Catalunya Òmnium-Muslim[1] party formed in late 2011 – will be presented at the forthcoming elections to the Parliament, which will be held in 2014 – in order to bring together the votes of Muslim immigrants living in Catalunya.
The president of the far-right formation Plataforma per Catalunya (PXC), Josep Anglada, regretted this and has claimed that “is a further step in the Islamist strategy of penetration in the institutions and accumulation of political power.”

Gasmi Slaheddine, president of the Muslim League of the Swiss canton of Ticcino was also there.The speaker of the party is Rachid El Attabi, owner of an halal butchery in Catalonia.
