Terrorist methods combined with a fierce agitation on the part of the clergy against radical and labor candidates are said to have caused the victory of the Christian Democrats, the Government Party, which won forty seats in the new Parliament. The Opposition elected 24, of whom 16 were the candidates of the People’s Socialist Party and 8 of the Social Democrats. Fourteen minority nationalities candidates were also elected, among them 7 Jews, 4 Poles, 2 Germans and 1 Russian.
The Jewish Deputies are Drs. Rosenbaum and Robincon, well-Known Zionists, Garfunkel, a Zerie Zion candidate, Raginsky of the Jewish merchants association, Finkelstein, who is styled a “democrat”, and Rabbi Cohenman. The name of the seventh successful candidate is not yet known.
Despite the vigorous campaign against labor and minority nationalities, the workers’ ballots polled 40,000 votes.
