  • [01] PRESIDENT CHRISTOFIAS - MINISTERS - RESIGNATIONS

    The members of the Council of Ministers submitted Thursday their resignations to President of the Republic Demetris Christofias.

    Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou said after Thursday`s extraordinary meeting of the Cabinet, that President Christofias informed his Ministers about his intention to proceed to a government reshuffle and asked them to tender in their resignations, which they did.

    Stephanou told reporters that the government reshuffle will be announced soon without elaborating further.

    He noted that the President will first negotiate with the political parties forming the government, AKEL left wing party and Democratic Party (DIKO).

    On Wednesday, two Ministers, belonging to DIKO, Ministers of Commerce, Industry and Tourism Antonis Paschalides and Health Christos Patsalides, handed in their resignations, following a party decision.

    Last Friday DIKO President Marios Garoyian announced five steps to help the government make a new start, following the massive explosion at the ``Evaggelos Florakis`` Naval Base, which killed 13 persons.

    A massive explosion occurred on July 11th, at the Naval Base ``Evaggelos Florakis`` in containers, full of munitions, which Cyprus had confiscated from Monchegorsk, a vessel sailing from Iran to Syria in 2009. Nicosia was acting in accordance with UN sanctions against Teheran.

    The explosion killed 13 people and caused huge damage to the island`s main electricity power plant at Vassiliko, which resulted in regular power cuts.
