Kadima MK Avi Dichter submitted his letter of resignation to Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin on Tuesday morning.
The resignation will take effect by Thurday's Knesset meeting.
Dichter decided Monday overnight to leave the Knesset and join the cabinet at the request of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak.
Dichter will replace outgoing Home Front Defense Minister Matan Vilna’i, who will leave next week for Beijing to be Israel’s next ambassador to China.
