Katsav yesterday showed exactly why he should never have been given the position of President. He is not a statesman by any stretch of the imagination. All he had to do yesterday was to say that he was resigning for the honour of the State but that he would fight all the allegations made against him. That would have been the statesmanly-like thing to do. Instead the rest of the world has seen a totally undignified response to serious charges by the head of our State.
