The Jewish community of Cracow today elected a new Kehillah Board, in popular elections in which 85% of those entitled to vote participated.
The community was split into many parties and groups, the election resulting in the loss of the majority previously held by the ultra Orthodox in combination with the so-called Assimilationist group. The campaign was of a very lively nature, each party conducting a vigorous propaganda for its ticket. Two campaigners for the Agudath Israel were arrested on the charge of election frauds. The election had the following results: the Zionists secured six seats; the Mizrachi, three; Artisans Group, two; Agudath Israel, four; non-Partisan Orthodox, four; Assimilationist, three; Jewish Labor Party, Bund, one; Bobow Chassidim, one; and a private list, one.
