Waigel Stays Put

BONN, Germany -- German Finance Minister Theo Waigel has reaffirmed that he was not about to leave his job, while partners in the ruling coalition demanded an end to bickering over Waigel's call for a Cabinet reshuffle.


"I am staying in office," Waigel told ZDF television in an interview Saturday. "I am not tired of my job."


Waigel said comments made earlier this month suggesting he wanted to step down after next year's general election had been taken out of context.
