She was re-elected again in 2013 and retained her place in the cabinet. Although she retained her seat in the 2015 elections, Yisrael Beiteinu did not join the coalition government and Landver lost her ministerial portfolio. However, after the party rejoined the government in May 2016, she was again appointed Minister of Immigrant Absorption, with the ministry renamed in 2017 to become the Ministry of Aliyah and Integration.

Landver currently lives in Ashdod, and is widowed, with one daughter.
