Obedience - to Assembly

Bahá’ís are “fully entitled to address criticisms to their Assemblies” and offer their recommendations. When Bahá’ís have addressed their criticisms, suggestions and advice to their Assemblies, including their views “about policies or individual members of elected bodies,” they must “wholeheartedly accept the advice or decision of the Assembly.”
(The Universal House of Justice, 1996 July 02, Criticism of Institutions)


But once the opinion the majority has been ascertained, all the members should automatically and unreservedly obey it, and faithfully carry it out.
(Shoghi Effendi, Lights of Guidance, p. 81)
