World Jewish Congress Favors Change in C. O. J. O. Voting Procedures

Download PDF for this date

The National Council of the British section of the World Jewish Congress voted last night to support a change in voting procedures of the Conference of Jewish Organizations.

A meeting of COJO is scheduled for August 14 in Geneva which will be devoted principally to organizational problems. In connection with that meeting, the executive council of Australian Jewry circulated a draft memorandum proposing elimination of the present voting system under which each member organization can veto any proposal and substituting instead a majority vote system. The British section of the WJC approved that proposal and informed the world executive of the WJC accordingly.
