President-elect Joe Biden continues to work on completing appointments for his new management staff, which is characterized by ethnic diversity and with different social backgrounds.
Two Democratic activists, Rima Dudin (of Palestinian / Jordanian origin) and Shwanza Gove (of African descent), were announced as deputy directors of the Office of Legislative Affairs in the White House.
وقال Of the bygones In a statement on Monday after the two women were appointed: “The American people are excited to start the work of our administration, and today’s appointees will help advance our agenda and ensure every American has a fair chance.”
Who is Rima Dudin?
Rima Dudin is the first woman of Arab descent to be appointed to this position in American history.
Rima Dudin studied economics and political science at the University of California, graduating in 2002, then enrolled in law school at the University of Illinois and graduated in 2006.
Dudin served as an assistant and advisor to Democratic Senator Dick Durbin, a minority leader from Illinois, and was the research director and assistant to the Democratic senator on the Judicial Subcommittee on Human Rights and Law.
Duden has also been known for her research activity, having co-authored a book called What’s Going On in Congress? Published by the Brookings Institution.
In introducing the book, the institute described it as “a guide to how Congress works” and “an essential resource for understanding and interpreting procedural tools … and the role of party politics in preparing legislation in Congress.”
Senator Durbin said about her: “Rima started working in my office as a legal trainee fourteen years ago, and slowly she gained the respect of everyone. She is smart and can trust her abilities and rely on them,” adding that the loss of his office is a gain for Biden.
Doden has also worked on a number of presidential campaigns, including that of former President Barack Obama.
Dodin and her colleague Gove will work under the leadership of Louisa Terrell, a veteran politician who worked in the Obama administration and who was announced as director of legislative affairs last week.
Terrell previously worked as an assistant to President Obama for legislative affairs, and is known for her long experience in the private sector in the field of information technology.
The Dudin family traces its origins to the town of Dura in the Hebron region in the south of the West Bank. Jordanian websites and media reported that Rima’s grandfather to her mother was Mustafa Dudin, who was Minister of Labor and Social Affairs in Wasfi al-Tal’s Ministry in the early 1970s. He was also a member of the Jordanian Senate in the 1970s.
She explained that Rima speaks Arabic fluently, and that she left Jordan when she was a child accompanied by her parents, Baggs and Samia, who moved to work in Washington state in the United States, where she received her initial education there before moving to study at the University of California.
The announcement of Dudin’s appointment to the new administration team at the White House comes at a time when the series of appointments continues to complete the administration team, which will work with President-elect Joe Biden when he officially takes office on January 20. It appears that many of the team members are those who previously worked in the administration of former President Barack Obama.
