Lavon's Censure Expected to Cause
Tangles in Formation of Parliament

(Continued from Page 1)
Mapai Central Committee voted
159 to 96, with five abstentions,
to remove Lavon from office.
When asked prior • to the
Central Committee meeting to
resign in order to avoid fur-
ther bitterness, Lavon indi-
cated that he did not intend
to accept disinissal without a
fight. He subsequently called
a meeting of the Histadrut
executive and was expected
to announce at that time
whether or not he would
resign.

President Ben-Zvi's first step

in facing the problem of a new

government was to receive a
delegation representing the
Mapai party's Knesset
ember-
ship. The delegation, it as un-
