One hundred and eighty Jewish councillors were elected in the municipal elections which took place this week in the district of Wolyn.

In several towns the Jewish population elected a greater number of councillors than the Polish, Russian and Ukrainian groups. In cities like Rowne, Dubno, Kowel, Luck and Kremienec, the population is predominantly Jewish.
