Nazis Spokesman Admits Party Seeks to Force New Elections

Download PDF for this date

That the National Sosialists are planning to force new elections to the Reichstag and the Prussian diet was revealed today by Gregor Strasser, parliamentary Fascist leader, at a meeting in Munich. The reason for compelling new elections, he said, is the refusal of Chancellor Bruening to appoint Fascists as ministers of defence and the interior.

In view of this refusal the Fascists will seek a new election, he stated, in the hope that the results will give them control and thus enable them to name an entire Fascist cabinet.
