Palestinian Assembly Will Meet in 1935

Download PDF for this date

The first opening session of the proposed legislative assembly for Palestine, to which Palestinian Jews have voiced the strongest objections, will be held not later than May, 1935, the Arab press reported today, adding that the members of the assembly will not be elected, but appointed by High Commissioner Sir Arthur Grenfell Wauchope.

From government sources the Jewish Telegraphic Agency learned today that the legislative assembly will be established in the near future, but that no definite date has yet been set for convoking the body and no method of chosing the members worked out yet.
