Tatarescu Again Heads Rumanian Government; Anti-semite May Enter Cabinet

Download PDF for this date

AFTER ION MIHALACHE, LEADER OF THE NATIONAL PEASANTS PARTY, HAD REFUSED TO FORM A COALITION WITH PROF. ALEXANDER VAIDA-VOEVOD, HEAD OF THE VIOLENTLY ANTI-SEMITIC RUMANIAN FRONT, KING CAROL TODAY AGAIN ENTRUSTED THE FORMATION OF A GOVERNMENT TO EX-PREMIER GEORG TATARESCU, WHOSE CABINET RESIGNED YESTERDAY.

PREMIER TATARESCU WAS EXPECTED TO SEEK THE SUPPORT OF THE “DISSIDENT LIBERAL” GROUP, WHOSE PROGRAM IS STRONGLY ANTI-SEMITIC, AND GEORG BRATANIU, ITS LEADER, WAS EXPECTED TO BE INCLUDED IN THE NEW CABINET.

MEANWHILE, THE POLITICAL TENSION PREVAILING HERE IS GIVING RISE TO ANTI-SEMITIC PROPAGANDA OF UNPRECEDENTED FEROCITY. IT IS FEARED THAT ANTI-JEWISH DISTURBANCES WILL OCCUR DURING THE GENERAL ELECTIONS, WHICH ARE SCHEDULED TO BE HELD SOME TIME IN DECEMBER.
