Melchett Not to Run for English Z. O. Presidency

Download PDF for this date

Lord Melchett, president of the English Zionist Federation, today informed the Federation that he will not be a candidate for re-election because of his health and because he prefers the election of a younger and more active man. Lord Melchett recently resigned as chairman of the Council of the Jewish Agency and of the Agency’s political commission as a protest against the White Paper.

It is believed possible that Lord Melchett will be proposed for the honorary vice-presidency of the English Zionist Federation.
