Former IDF spokeswoman Brig. -Gen (res.) Ruth Yaron intends to announce that she is entering politics in a television program on Tuesday. Yaron has been negotiating with a party but she has refused to say which one. Yaron is a former diplomat who served in Washington, Canada and the Ivory Coast before becoming IDF spokeswoman under then chief of general staff Moshe Ya'alon, who is also considering entering politics. Channel 2 reported on Monday that Likud chairman Binyamin Netanyahu intends to ask the Likud central committee to allow him to reserve slots on the party's Knesset list for candidates like Ya'alon and former minister Dan Meridor. Netanyahu denied the report.
