Kadima MK Ya'acov Edri announced on Wednesday that he planned to participate in the memorial ceremony for Yitzhak Rabin at Beit Hanassi in the evening, Israel Radio reported. Edri will be the official government representative at the ceremony. According to the report, only about 180 out of 600 people invited to Beit Hanassi have confirmed that they will come. Earlier this week, President Moshe Katsav announced that he would not participate in the Rabin memorial ceremony that will be held at the Knesset on Thursday, due to the allegations of sexual harassment and rape that have surrounded him for the last four months. In turn, many MKs announced that they would not participate in the ceremony at Beit Hanassi.
