173 seats in the Assembly of Representatives
Elections to the Assembly of Representatives were held in Mandatory Palestine on 2 August 1944. Just over 200,000 Jewish residents voted, more than 70% of all those eligible to vote. This compared with just over 50,000 who voted at the previous elections in 1931. The difference reflected the high level of Jewish immigration to Palestine in the 1930s and 1940s.
A total of 24 parties contested the elections, nominating 1,694 candidates. However, the Revisionist-Zionist Hatzohar party, Sephardic Jews, the General Zionist Group "B" and the Jewish Farmers Association boycotted the elections.
