Decision Soon in Israel

Further to this post, about Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's intention to resign that office, here is an update on the upcoming election of a new leader for Olmert's Kadima Party, who would succeed him as prime minister.

The expectation now, as it was when the campaign began in August, is that Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni will win. The election will be held on Wednesday, September 17.

In the article I linked to, above, The Times, of London, implicitly compares Livni to former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, by bestowing on Livni, Thatcher's nickname the "Iron Lady".
