Seventy mayors from all over Israel, including Arabs and Bedouins, arrived at the prime minister's residence in Jerusalem to meet with Prime Minister Ariel Sharon on Tuesday evening. Sharon invited the mayors in an effort to attract them to his new Kadima party. Shmuel Riffman of Ramat Hanegev had already announced on Monday that he was joining the Kadima movement. Meir Nitzan of Rishon Leziyon declared at Tuesday's meeting that "I'm returning my labor membership card and joining Kadima." Other mayors attending included Menahem Ariav of Nazareth Ilit and Moti Sasson of Holon.
