German President Resigns

In a historically unprecedented step, German President Horst Köhler resigned today. The apparent cause for his resignation is criticism over statements he made in connection with German military involvement in Afghanistan. Pursuant to Article 57 of the Basic Law, the president of the state chamber (Bundesrat) will take over his duties.
