French Justice Minister Christiane Taubira resigned from her post Wednesday after a standoff over a plan by French President François Hollande to strip dual nationals of French citizenship if they are convicted of terrorism. The proposal to amend the constitution came in the wake of the Nov. 13 terror attacks in Paris that left 130 people dead and several injured.

Taubira’s resignation was reportedly accepted by Hollande with immediate effect and his office made the announcement of her resignation Wednesday. Taubira had openly disagreed with Hollande’s move of stripping citizenship of dual nationals and told the local iTele network in January that she considered the move “completely useless,” France 24 reported. The announcement comes as the controversial terror proposal is set to be examined by the parliament.

Taubira would be replaced by Jean-Jacques Urvoas, who is believed to be supportive of Hollande and Prime Minister Manuel Valls, Hollande’s office said in a statement, according to Reuters. Taubira was also one of the leading politicians who pushed to legalize gay marriage.

"Madame Christiane Taubira, Minister of Justice presented her resignation to the President of the Republic on January 27th, who accepted it,” the statement from Hallande’s office said, according to the Local, a French news network, adding: “They agreed on the need to terminate her functions at the time when the debate on the revision of the constitution opens at the National Assembly.”

Taubira, born in 1952, is one of the country’s only high-ranking black politicians. Although Taubira has been widely praised for her work on social policy change, she was accused of being too soft on criminals than others in the government, Reuters reported. Her opposition over Hollande’s proposal looked more problematic following the terror attacks in Paris as France scrambled to increase security in the country.

She had openly criticized Hollande’s plan on a radio show late December and said prematurely that he planned to ditch the move. Following this, opposition members of the parliament — not for the first time — demanded her resignation.

Taubira, who was also reportedly subject to racism during her time as a minister, announced her resignation through a post on Twitter Wednesday and said that she was proud of her work.

"Proud. The Ministry of Justice has grown in strength and vitality. Just as those who devote themselves to justice each day, my dreams are unbroken," Taubira said in a message on Twitter, according to the Local.
