A manifesto proclaiming general elections for the constituent congress to establish an Independent Zionist Organization, was issued today by the Executive of the World Zionist Revisionist Party.

The elections are set for August 18. The constituent congress is to take place in September, the manifesto announces.

More than 160,000 members of the Zionist Revisionist Party voted in the recent plebiscite to create an Independent Zionist Organization, in competition to the present World Zionist Organization, the manifesto says.
