Download PDF for this date

Jerusalem voted against Nashashibi and helped Dr. Khaldi, who is a Moslem, to defeat Nashashibi in the latter’s own district.

Dr. Khaldi, who was inaugurated as mayor of the city today, enjoys the support of the Jews and will work in cooperation with two vice mayors, one of whom is a Jew and the other an Arab. The municipal council consists of six Jews and six Arabs, including the mayor and the two vice mayors.
