At a plenary session in January 1910, the Central Committee of the Russian Social-Democratic Labour Party, in order to emphasise its earnest desire for unity, adopted a decision to request the International Socialist Bureau to accept as representatives of the Party on the Bureau two comrades: G. Plekhanov and N. Lenin. It goes without saying that the Russian Social-Democratic Labour Party lays claim to only one vote hi the Bureau but it would like to have fuller representation, as in the case of France.
This decision—to add Comrade G. Plekhanov to the present representative, N. Lenin—was unanimously supported by the Social-Democratic delegation at the Congress.
Representative of the R.S.D.L.P. on the International Socialist Bureau.
