In view of the fact that the Provisional Bureau of the Social-Democratic group of Bolsheviks in the Constituent Assembly has taken no action in respect of its chief task, that of working out a principled resolution on our Party's attitude to the Constituent Assembly; and
that the numerous individual statements, proposals and votes have shown that the majority of (or all?) the members of the Provisional Bureau hold views that are absolutely un-Social-Democratic and reveal a bourgeois-democratic attitude to the Constituent Assembly ignoring the real conditions of the class struggle and civil war,
the group resolves that the Provisional Bureau shall be dissolved and a new one elected.
