The Arab boycott of the Palestine elections for the Legislative Council was a complete success, according to the Arab delegation here. The boycott was so universal, according to the Arab representatives, that the authorities were forced to extend the period of nominations for the secondary elections until March 12.

“Not a single Arab voted”, Arabs here contend, despite previous reports that the voting was heavy in the Beer-Sheba, Gaza and other southern Palestine districts.
