Former Minister of Culture Rein Lang, who resigned from his post earlier in the week, has retaken his seat in Parliament, where he serves on the European Union Affairs and Constitutional Committees.

Lang replaces Andrei Korobeinik, the MP who had been chosen as Lang's stand-in despite having recently criticized the Reform Party, to which both belong, for communication problems with voters.

Urve Tiidus, the new Culture Minister, has vacated her MP position to Tarmo Mänd, who has held high ranks in the Government Office and the Office of the President.
