Kadima MK Avi Dichter will leave the Knesset and join the cabinet at the request of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak, Army Radio reported overnight Monday.

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.

According to the report, Dichter will likely run on the Likud list in future elections. His seat in Knesset will be filled by Kadima's Ahmed Dabbah.
