NICOSIA - Cypriot President Demetris Christofias will seek the resignation of his cabinet on Thursday in the face of public anger at an accidental munitions blast that destroyed the island's biggest power station and threatens it with a financial meltdown.

Paving the way for a reshuffle, Christofias will ask all members of his cabinet to step down at a meeting scheduled for 0630 GMT, government spokesman Stefanos Stefanou said.

On Wednesday, the junior governing partner in Cyprus's center-left coalition, the Democratic Party, said it had asked its ministers in government to bow out in a bid to expedite its own call for a cabinet reshuffle.

"The President of the Republic intends to proceed with a broad reshuffle...(He) has convened for tomorrow an extraordinary session of the Council of Ministers and will ask all ministers to place their resignations at his disposal," Stefanou said in a statement.
