Mapai Votes to Continue Cabinet Inter-party Negotiations

Download PDF for this date

The general council of the Mapai Party, meeting here this week-end, voted to empower its political committee to proceed with negotiations with the various political parties for formation of a new coalition government. The resolution urged the political committee to conclude negotiations within a few days and expressed regret that the Mapam Party had refused to join a new coalition.

President Chaim Weizmann received Premier David Ben Gurion Friday at Rehovoth in an hour-long meeting, to be informed on the Premier’s progress in his consiltations on formation of a new cabinet. An official spokesman said that Mr. Ben Gurion retains his “exploratory mission” and will report again to the President this week.
