Thrace Jews Perturbed over Electoral Issue

Download PDF for this date

The Greek government today ordered the Turkish minority in Thrace to vote in the next senatorial election as a separate electoral college.

The Jewish population fears that the government also intends to impose the system of minority electoral colleges on the Jewish population. An inquiry will be addressed by Jewish representatives to the government, to establish whether the order affecting the Turkish minority will be applied to the Jews as well.
