Michigan Elects the nation's First all-Muslim City Council
Elections were held in the city of Hamtramck, also located in the state of Michigan. They elected a mayor and resolved the fate of three of the six seats in the city council.

According to the election results, Hamtramck became the first US city in which all elected positions are held by Muslims.

Of the just under 30 thousand inhabitants, a quarter are of Arab origin (almost all are Yemenis), 27% are Asians (most of them are Bengalis), there are communities of Bosnians and Afro-americans who adopted Islam.

Now in the council (in Fig.) there will be three Yemenis, two Bengali and a Polish convert Amanda Yachkovsky, and the mayor is Yemeni Amir Ghalib.

It is also worth noting the fact that in the United States, the number of people who consider themselves to belong to a particular religion is decreasing every year.

Currently, 29% of the US population call themselves atheists (last year it was about 23%).

The percentage of representatives of the Christian religion of different directions (Catholicism, Protestantism, Orthodoxy, etc.) is 63%, although literally 5-7 years ago it was around 70%.

Representatives of other religions (Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism) make up from 6% to 8% of the total population of the country. This is a historical maximum during the existence of the United States.
