Brig.-Gen. (ret.) Amira Dotan, the first female to attain that rank in IDF history, joined a growing list of people who were becoming members of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's Kadima Party on Monday. Over the past decade, Dotan has been involved in conflict resolution projects. She served as the representative of the Jewish Agency and headed its delegation in North America. Liat Rabner, the 32-year-old deputy mayor of Ramle and a former chairwoman of World Likud Youth, soon became the third woman to join Kadima on Monday. Rabner was nearly elected to the Knesset on the Likud list in 1999. Avigdor Yitzhaki, the former director-general of the Prime Minister's Office, also joined Kadima's Knesset list on Monday. Yitzhaki, a close associate of the prime minister, is Sharon's choice for coalition chairman should he form the government after the March 28 elections.
