"She was very uncomfortable
about what happened," says
Mrs. Wehmeyer now. "I didn't

Right-Wing Parties
Gain In Netherlands

Amsterdam (JTA) — Two
right-wing parties have
made unexpected gains in
municipal elections held last
week in Holland.
In elections for council
seats held March 2 in some
650 municipalities nation-
wide, two extremist parties
— the Center Democrats and
the Center Democrats 1986
— successfully elected 77
candidates in 45 municipal
races.
In Holland's previous
municipal elections, the two
parties won 11 council seats
in eight local races.
The results sent a cau-
tionary message to the two
parties in the country's
governing coalition — the
Christian Democrats and
Labor — which are facing
parliamentary elections in
early May.
If voting patterns in the
municipal elections prevail
in the parliamentary voting,
political observers here cau-
tion, the Christian
Democrats and Labor each
stand to lose about 15 of
their seats in the 150-
member lower chamber of
Parliament.
The percentage of those
who voted for the two right-
wing parties was largest in
Holland's four main cities —
Amsterdam, The Hague,
Rotterdam and Utrecht —
where the two parties
received about 10 percent of
the votes.
The two parties' success in
the municipal elections is
largely seen as a result of
voter dissatisfaction with
the coalition government's
policies of sharply reduced
budgets.
And, as in many countries
in Europe and elsewhere,
voters on the right seek to

place blame on an influx of
immigrants from poorer
countries for economic
downturns and lower overall
living conditions.
The two nationalist parties
are viewed as having one
issue only, as reflected in
their common slogan, "One's
own country first, and the
Netherlands for
Netherlanders only." Other
than opposition to foreigners
and criticism of the current
government, the two parties
have not offered any con-
crete solutions to the coun-
try's economic and social
problems.
The right-wing parties,
although expressing dislike
of foreigners or immigrants,
have not directed any an-
tipathy toward the country's
Jews, who comprise only a
small percentage of
Holland's population of more
than 15 million.



Peruvian Jew
Is Prime Minister

New York (JTA) — The
Peruvian government has
named its first Jew to the
position of prime minister.
Efrain Goldenberg
Schreiber, formerly Peru's
foreign minister, became the
country's prime minister on
Feb. 17, replacing Alfonso
Bustamente.
Goldenberg, who will re-
tain the foreign minister's
portfolio, was a businessman
with little formal govern-
mental or diplomatic experi-
ence before he became for-
eign minister last
September. (Goldenberg,
like many Latin Americans,
often drops the mother's
family name in non-formal
usages.)
