  • Description

    The Mapai Central Committee voted at the Theatre Ohel, Tel Aviv February 4 to expel Mr Pinhas Lavon from his position as head of the Histadrut. The vote on the resolution was 159 in favour and 96 against. Five abstained.

    Pro-Lavon supporters shouted their disgust outside the Theatre Ohel. Police moved in quickly with swinging truncheons and soon dispersed the crowd.

    His "expulsion" from the Secretary-Generalship followed the recent resignation of Premier David Ben-Gurion after a long feud with Lavon. The reason for their disagreement was an "ill-advised" security mission which Lavon led in 1954.
