PM Jüri Ratas re-elected leader of the Centre Party in Estonia

Prime Minister of Estonia, Jüri Ratas has been re-elected leader of the Estonian Centre Party (Eesti Keskerakond) on 23 August during the party congress in Tallinn.

The party members also elected two new board members: Tanel Kiik, Minister of Social Affairs in the Estonian government, and Lauri Laats, elder of the Tallinn city district of Mustamae. The mandate of party Secretary-General Mihhail Korb was also extended.

In a speech after his re-election, Prime Minister Ratas thanked his supporters and party members for their trust and underlined the importance of the local elections taking place in 2021:

“In order to achieve the best result, we need great activity by the leaders of regions, regional chapters, the extended board and committees. It is a duty of the leadership of the Centre Party to discuss proposals and to use them in shaping of our policy if possible. The contribution of each member of the Centre Party counts.”

Jüri Ratas has been the leader of the Centre Party since November 2016, becoming Prime Minister of Estonia later that same year.

ALDE Party President Hans van Baalen congratulated Jüri Ratas on his re-election.
