New Jewish Party Deputy in Czecho-slovakian Parliament

Download PDF for this date

The Executive of the Jewish Party of Czecho-Slovakia has elected Dr. Angelo Goldstein as its representative in Parliament in succession to Dr. Ludwig Singer, the leader of the Jewish Party, who died in July.

At the general election in October 1929, the Jewish National Party, of which Dr. Singer was President, obtained representation for the first time, returning two Deputies to Parliament, Dr. Singer himself and Dr. Julius Reisz. The Jewish Party had an election bloc with the Polish Party, which was also able, by means of the alliance, to return two Deputies, instead of one, in the last Parliament.

There are five other Jews in the present Czecho-Slovakian Parliament, Dr. Alfred Meissner, who is Minister of Justice, Dr. Ludwig Czech, Minister of Social Welfare, Senator Jacob Polack, and Deputies Robert Klein and Hugo Bergmann. The two Ministers belong to the Social Democratic Party, as do the other Jewish members of Parliament, with the exception of Deputy Bergmann, who belongs to the Czecho-Slovakian National Socialist Party.
