When asked whether he thought the centre-right cabinet should stay in office, he said: "I consider the charges that have been brought to be very serious."

 

"After hearing from the police president and the supreme state attorney, I am coming to the conclusion that they are based on sufficient evidence," he added in his first remarks on the political turmoil.

 

"This is an indirect but clear answer to your question."
