Mapam Party Adopts New Constitution; Abolishes Factions

The Mapam Party, left Socialist party, decided today to end the existence of all factions within the party. Two such factions broke with the party in the last year.

At the first meeting of the Mapam Council since the L’Achduth Avodah group split away from the party, the party adopted a new constitution doing away with factions. A special Arab group within the party will also be abolished and the Arabs will remain as individual members of the party, just as the Jews.
