N.z.o. Urges Popular Vote to Name Jewish Agency Members

The New Zionist Organization, right-wing Zionist body, today made public a proposal that a world-wide Jewish assembly, elected by universal adult suffrage, elect the members of the Jewish Agency for Palestine.

The proposal offers cooperation with the World Zionist Organization in convoking the assembly. If this offer is not accepted, it is stated the New Zionist Organization will proceed with plans for convocation of the assembly alone.
