Argentine Mizrachists, Revisionists Demand New Election for Delegates to Zionist Congress

Download PDF for this date

The Mizrachi and Revisionist organizations of Argentina have filed a demand for nullification of the recently held elections for delegates to the 22nd World Zionist Congress.

The protest is based upon the claim that most of the people who purchased Shekels did not vote in the elections. In this city, the protesting groups declare, only 20 percent of the eligible Jews cast their ballots. It has not yet been decided whether to hold a new election.
