A day after being sworn in as a minister, Likud MK David Amsalem resigns from the Knesset under the so-called Norwegian Law.

Amsalem, who will serve as a second minister in the Justice Ministry, as well as regional cooperation minister and liaison between the government and Knesset, has long wielded influence in the Knesset, at times confounding Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

He will be replaced in Knesset by Likud member Avichai Boaron.
