Polish Zionists Not to Vote in Sejm Elections

Download PDF for this date

Two Zionist parties today announced their decision not to participate in the forthcoming elections to the Polish Sejm.

The Central Committee of the Zionist Party of Poland explained the decision was reached because the new election regulations make the election of an independent Jewish representation virtually impossible. The Executive Committee of the Poale Zion, Socialist Zionist party, announced they would not participate as long as the new election laws are in effect.
