There are lots of examples of government officials worldwide resigning or offering to tender their resignations following public protests or scandals, or the failure of their governments to perform on particular issues.
Why doesn't someone start a campaign to pressure National Security Minister Martin Joseph to do the same?

Here are some examples:
"Other senior Iraqi officials have considered resigning in recent weeks over the failures of their government to make progress after more than a year in power, according to Iraqi and U.S. officials."

"A senior Finance Ministry official resigned Wednesday as the trading scandal involving his former employer, the Nordic investment bank D. Carnegie, spread to the upper echelons of the Swedish government.
State Secretary Urban Funered said he had resigned his post to keep allegations of financial wrongdoing against Carnegie from tainting government efforts to sell off stakes in major Swedish companies."

Need we say more?
