Cyprus President announces Cabinet reshuffle ‘early next week’ after Justice Minister resigns

Cypriot Minister of Justice and Public Order, Emily Yiolitis, resigned Thursday pointing out that continuous press reports about her possible replacement after a Cabinet reshuffle and her presentation as the “weakest link” of the government are making her presence at the Ministry unproductive and particularly problematic.

In a resignation letter to the President of Cyprus, Nicos Anastasiades, Yiolitis says that she was surprised that the President told her that her presence affects the image of the government and of himself, when he called him eralier on Thursday to ask him about the reports.

“To my great surprise you conveyed to me that my presence in the Cabinet affects the image of the government but also yours.
