Jewish National Party
During the Austrian-Hungarian Empire, there was already a Jewish National Party which took part in elections, gaining four member at the Austrian House of Representatives in 1907: Benno Straucher (Czernowitz, founder in 1906 of the regional Jewish National People's Party), Adolf Stand (Brody), Arthur Mahler and Heinrich Gabel (East Galicia). Only Straucher was reelected at the next elections in 1911.
At the next elections on 17 October 1920 a change in the electoral law eliminated all the minor parties from the Parliament. At the 21 October 1923 elections, a new party, the Jewish Electoral Community (Jüdische Wahlgemeinschaft) failed again to elect a representative, with 24,970 votes (0.8%), as the Jewish Party (Jüdische Partei) on the 24 April 1927 elections, with 10,845 votes (0.3%), the Jewish List (Jüdische Liste) on the 9 November 1930 elections, with 2,133 votes (0.1%).
