Zionists in Transylvania Hold Elections to Congress

Download PDF for this date

Elections for delegates to the Zionist Congress were held separately throughout Transylvania yesterday by the independent provincial Zionist organization. The Rumania-wide elections will be held on Nov. 3.

The Revisionists in Transylvania have submitted a protest to the Jewish Agency elections committee in Jerusalem asserting that they were barred from the ballot. The Revisionists asserted that during the sale of Shekels throughout Rumania they were not allotted any, and that after their protests a special allotment was sent to Transylvania but that they only received a small number of these.
