The fall of the Averescu government and the prospect for an improvement in the Jewish situation in the country may facilitate the creation of a United Jewish front.

Leaders of the Jewish factions in the country are considering the creation of a parliamentary election bloc. The Jewish nationalist parties, as well as the Union of Roumanian Jews, will probably unite for the elections in view of the clause in the election law which provides that a group may obtain parliamentary representation only if its list obtains two percent of the total votes cast.
