Thank you for visiting my page!

My name is Abdishakur Ali. I am a Finnish citizen of Somali origin. I am a father and husband and I have lived in Finland for 12 years now. I am running for the City Council of Turku in the Municipal Elections of spring 2017 as a candidate for the National Coalition Party (Kokoomus).

I hold master’s in Business Management and Entrepreneurship and specialization in International Project Management. Currently, I work as a counsellor and expert on multiculturalism and social integration of migrants in the greater region of Turku. I am also an activist and community volunteer. I spend a great deal of my time for social activism and volunteering activities. In this election, key issues I am focusing are employment, entrepreneurship, welfare of families with children, integration of migrants, youth participation, sports and leisure activities for women and girls and last but not least the modernization of the city of Turku.

If you find my themes equally important, I would be grateful and honoured to have your vote for city council election. Please join me and vote for a brighter future. Municipal elections are held every fourth year. The upcoming election will be held on 9 April 2017. However advance voting will be held from 29 March to 1 April 2017. By casting your vote in the forthcoming municipal election you will have the chance to influence the decisions on issues that matter in your daily life.
