One third of Cypriots want president out

NICOSIA - One-third of Greek Cypriots believe Cypriot President Demetris Christofias should resign, blaming him for a deadly munitions blast which plunged Cyprus into an energy crisis last week.
A poll by the leading Phileleftheros daily said 39 percent of respondents blamed Christofias for the disaster personally, with 33 percent believing he should step down.
The July 11 explosion of confiscated Iranian munitions at a military base killed 13 people and triggered Cyprus's worst peacetime disaster with rolling power cuts leading to the most serious challenge to Christofias's three-year presidency.
