      Bayit Yehudi Registration C'tee Rejects Internal C'tee


      The Registration Committee of the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party) rejected, Sunday evening, decisions by the National Religious Party's Internal Committee regarding changes in registration regulations. In the interest of party unity, the Registraton Committee decided that it was willing to hold two primary elections within two weeks, but, contrary to the Internal Committee vote, the first election would only be for party chairman.

      Some committee members felt that if the party did not go this way, an explosion in the ranks will be inevitable.
