Download PDF for this date

At least four Jews and four Christians will be members of the first Mesopotamian Parliament, the elections to which started today, it is estimated.

The interests of the National Minorities in Mesopotamia are safeguarded by a clause in the Anglo-Mesopotamian Treaty, which guarantees them full representation in the legislative body.
