Premier Yitzhak Rabin told Labor members of the Jewish Agency Executive and other key party officials today that he was postponing a final decision on proposing Haifa Mayor Yosef Almogi for the office of chairman of the Jewish Agency and World Zionist Organization Executives pending consultations with Zionist and Jewish Agency leaders from abroad. Many overseas Jewish leaders will be here next week to attend a meeting of the Jewish Agency Board of Governors. Informed sources told the JTA that all present at today’s meeting rejected Jewish Agency acting chairman Leon Dulzin’s assertion that he would be a non-partisan candidate. (See special interview with Dulzin on P. 4.)
