Europe’s liberals congratulate Prime Minister Kaja Kallas on her renewed mandate and look forward to her leadership within the European Union and the liberal family.
After successful government negotiations between the Reform Party, Eesti 200 and Social Democrats, incumbent Prime Minister Kaja Kallas has renewed her mandate to lead Estonia. Furthermore, the Reform Party will hold a total of seven ministerial positions out of 13.
In the March elections, the Reform Party won by a landslide with 31.2% of the vote. Prime Minister Kallas broke another record by receiving 31,821 personal votes, which is more than any other Estonian politician in history.
Commenting on the concluded negotiations, Prime Minister Kallas said:
“This coalition agreement ensures that Estonia is protected, that we continue as an independent country. We have to make decisions that may be difficult but are necessary for Estonia. We want Estonia to be protected, the livelihood of our people to be guaranteed, the state's finances to be in order, education, language and culture to be maintained, and tomorrow to be even better for everyone.”
ALDE Party co-Presidents Ilhan Kyuchyuk MEP and Senator Timmy Dooley congratulate Prime Minister Kallas on her renewed mandate.
“Estonia is in a safe pair of hands with Kaja Kallas as Prime Minister. We look forward to her continuous leadership in the EU and the liberal family,” Kyuchyuk said.
“Estonian leadership has been essential in these times of war. Kaja Kallas has demonstrated inspiring trust and security in her ability to govern the country effectively,” Dooley said.
