This is the seventh and revised edition of the booklet and its aim is to inform, once again, the members of the World Zionist Organization, and in particular the Zionist Federations, in clear and simple, rather than professional legal language, of all the steps to be taken at the various stages of the preparations and the implementation of the elections to the Zionist Congress.
The Zionist General Council has decided to convene the 37th Zionist Congress in Jerusalem in October, 2015 and therefore it is time to start the preparations, if they haven’t begun already, on all levels and in particular in the electoral areas themselves.
The purpose of this booklet is to give a general picture of the whole election process. We shall also let you have the text of the various legal provisions pertaining to the Congress elections, in particular:
- The Rules for the Election of Delegates to Congress (1976) (referred to in this booklet as "The Election Rules")
