The Jerusalem District Attorney served an indictment against MK Tzahi Hanegbi (Kadima) at the Magistrate's Court on Monday.
The move followed Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz's decision on August 16 to indict Hanegbi for allegedly making dozens of political appointments while he was environment minister.
Charges against the MK included fraud, breach of trust, election bribery, providing false testimony and lying under oath.
The District Attorney also asked that a group of three judges be chosen to lead the trial.
