Jewish Electors Disfranchized in Salonica

October 29, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Of the 96,000 Jews resident in Salonica, not more than 3,600, or about 3%, will be allowed to go to the polls in the forthcoming elections.

Disfranchisement of the Jewish electors, who are suspected of being hostile to the present government, was effected through the establishment of a special Jewish election sector, by means of which a few thousand hand-picked Jews are recognized as electors.
