Former MK Omri Sharon announced on Tuesday that he would work on behalf of Kadima leader Tzipi Livni in her March 27 party primary race against Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee chairman Shaul Mofaz.

Sharon, the son of the party's founder, former prime minister Ariel Sharon, did not endorse any candidate in the last Kadima leadership race in 2008. He was elected to the Knesset in 2003.

In February 2006, the Tel Aviv Magistrates Court sentenced Omri Sharon to a nine-month prison term, a nine-month suspended sentence, and an NIS 300,000 fine after he was convicted of violating political fundraising laws and providing false testimony during his father's 1999 race for leader of Likud.
