Proposal by Jews for American Procedure Not Supported in Sejm

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The proposal of the Club of Jewish Deputies to introduce the American procedure in the Polish presidential elections was not presented to the Sejm because of lack of support.

The Club of Jewish Deputies and Senators has a membership of 46, while not less than 100 signatures are required to a motion to amend the Polish constitution.

The Sejm yesterday adopted in its first reading the government bill to amend the constitution. It is predicted that all changes proposed by the government will be accepted, despite the strong opposition in the Sejm. Parliament is to conclude its sessions at the end of August.
