Dear Brother / Sister,
Islam does not impose a certain form of administration. There are some main rules set about the issue such as justice, equality, freedom without wrongdoings. Therefore, our religion does not object to electing a leader to rule the country and the nation while it orders to choose a leader, even when people set out on a journey.
On the other hand, the first caliphs had all come to power through elections.
