No Group Gets Majority in Warsaw Jewish Elections

Download PDF for this date

Jewish community elections failed today to return expected majorities for the Jewish labor party, the Zionist or Agudath Israel blocs. As a result, difficulties are expected to be encountered by the community executive when a working majority is needed.

The Communists supported the labor bloc.

Fourteen seats in the executive went to the Jewish labor party; eleven to the Agudath Israel; ten to the General Zionists; four to the Mizrachi; two each to the Grodzis Chassidim and the right Poale-Zion; one each to the Revisionists, the Peoples Party and the left Poale-Zion and four to independents.
