Fort Saskatchewan Town Council
Abdurahman was elected to Fort Saskatchewan Town Council in October 1977. Abdurahman was elected Mayor of Fort Saskatchewan in October 1980 and reelected in October 1983, and was the first Mayor of the City of Fort Saskatchewan following Fort Saskatchewan's incorporation as a city in 1985. Abdurahman resigned midway through her second term as mayor in order to contest the 1986 Alberta general election.
Abdurahman first attempted to enter provincial politics in 1986, running in the electoral district of Clover Bar in the 1986 Alberta general election. She ran under the Progressive Conservative banner finishing a distant second place in a field of four candidates to Representative incumbent MLA Walt Buck. She ran for a second time as a Liberal candidate in the 1993 Alberta general election. Due to redistribution she ran in the new Clover Bar-Fort Saskatchewan electoral district and defeated incumbent Independent MLA Kurt Gesell. Aburahman ran for a second term in the 1997 Alberta general election. She increased her popular vote but was defeated by Progressive Conservative candidate Rob Lougheed.
She died in 2013.
