Klarman stated. He said
that in order to rectify
this situation he was will-
ing to have a three-month
postponement.
When the Zionist Gen-
eral Council's decision
was first announced,
Yosef Almogi, chairman of
the WZO and Jewish
Agency Executives, ex-
plained it would take up to
two years to schedule elec-
tions and that in view of
the serious problems fac-
ing Israel and Zionism it
was better to postpone the
elections in some places
than defer the next con-
gress.
Meanwhile, Shulamit

Party -to form the Civil

has four Knesset seats,
has joined forces with the
- Labor Party again for the
forthcoming World
Zionist Congress.
Ms. Aloni's group, with
seven delegates to the
congress, signed an
agreement with the

for a joint list to the con-
gress, it was announced
by Yitzhak Koren, the
movement's secretary.
In Jerusalem, it was re-
ported that 16 new settle-
ments will be established
in Israel and the admin-
istered areas in one day
during the 29th World
Zionist Congress here in
January and the delegates
will visit the sites to take a
symbolic part in the open-
ing of the settlements.
It was learned that all
of the settlements have
been approved by the
WZO Executive in coor-
dination with the gov-
ernment.

World Zionist Congress Delay
Asked by Herut Representative

TEL AVIV (JTA) —
Yosef Klarman, the
Herut representative on
the Zionist General
Council, has urged the
World Zionist . Organiza-
tion to postpone for three
months the 29th World
Zionist Congress, now
scheduled for January
1977, to allow Zionist fed-
erations in the United
States and elsewhere to
elect delegates to the
congress.
Klarman, who heads
the WZO's youth aliya
department, was one of
the strong dissenters
when the 123-member
Zionist General Council
decided last month to
forego elections in those
countries where 90 per-
cent of the factions repre-
sented in the Zionist fed-
erations agreed upon a
slate of delegates be-
forehand.
The postponement.
would allow the election
of delegates according to
the regulations that have
been set by the Zionist
General Council which is
. the actions committee of
the WZO, Klarman said.
He charged that the pre-
sent decision to convene
the congress on the basis
of the composition of dele-
gates to the last congress
is illegal even if elections
were held in some Zionist
federations.
Klarman said he based
his charge on the findings
of the WZO comptroller
who said that the persons
eligible to vote for dele-
gates were those who had
signed the "Jerusalem
Program," had filled out
an application blank for
- membership in a national
Zionist federation and
had paid the annual
membership fee. But,
Klarman stated, in most
places these conditions
had not been met.
In the U.S., for exam-
ple, he said, more than
350,000 of the 600,000
members of Zionist or-
ganizations had not
signed the "Jerusalem
Program." He said simi-
lar situations existed in
Canada and Britain.
Unless there were elec-
tions in all federations,

upcoming congress and
