On March 21, 2005 the Baha'i World News Service reported, "The Universal House of Justice has announced the election of two new members, Payman Mohajer and Paul Lample. The Universal House of Justice, the international governing council of the Baha'i Faith, conveyed to National Spiritual Assemblies the results of a by-election to fill two vacancies on Naw-Ruz, the Baha'i new year. The holy day is celebrated from sunset on March 20 to sunset on the 21st. Dr. Mohajer and Mr. Lample fill the vacancies created by the departure at Naw-Ruz of Mr. Ian Semple and Mr. Douglas Martin, owing to age and the related needs of the Faith."
