Lithuanian Cabinet Remains in Power Due to Minorities’ Action

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The Lithuanian cabinet remained in power due to the attitude of the deputies representing the national minorities in a vote which was taken in parliament yesterday.

A resolution of lack of confidence was being voted upon. The Jewish deputies and others of the national minorities refrained from voting. As a result of this, the government received a majority. In motivating their action, the representatives of the national minorities declared that under the present conditions in the country “normal parliamentarianism is impossible.”

The Jewish deputy, Finkelstein, resigned from his seat. He will be succeeded by Attorney Landau.
