Opposition party wins Estonia election


Opposition party wins Estonia election

Estonia's opposition centre-right Reform party won the country's general election on Sunday (Mar 3) over the governing centre-left Centre party.

The opposition centre-right Reform party has won Estonia's general election, beating the ruling Centre. Reform, led by former MEP Kaja Kallas, took about 29% of the vote to 23% for Centre in Sunday's ballot.

Meanwhile the far-right Conservative People's Party of Estonia (EKRE), which has called for a referendum on EU membership, came a close third.

Ms Kallas - set to be Estonia's first female prime minister - said all coalition options were on the table.

Nearly a quarter of Estonia's 881,000 eligible voters cast their ballots by e-voting. Results from e-voting gave Reform an even higher score.

Estonia uses proportional representation to pick members in its 101-seat parliament.
