General Zionists in Israel Demand New Government to Deal with Economic Crisis

Download PDF for this date

A demand for the formation of a new Cabinet was social here last night by the General Zionist Party in a statement which also rejected the last government economic proposals and labelled Premier David Ben Gurion;s resent radio address to the nation on the economic situation a “pre-election speech.”

The General Zionist statement called for new Parliamentary elections, instisting that “there is no other remedy.” The government program, the statement said, is a palliative which offers no hope of improving “our critical situation” nor of providing a foundation for “restoring the public’s confidence in the government’s capability to overcome the crisis or provide an appropriate atmosphere for encouraging investments” in Israel.
