Popular TV presenter to run for Parliament with Social Democrats ({{commentsTotal}})


Kanal 2's Tanel Talve said he will run for Parliament with the Social Democrats, but has not joined the party.

Talve was the second-most popular independent candidate at the European Parliament elections earlier in the year, winning slightly over 10,000 votes. Talve will run in Tartu and Jõgeva.

The former Development Fund head Ott Pärna, who also said Wednesday he will go with the Social Democrats, has been listed to stand for the Parliament in Tallinn's Central, Lasnamäe and Pirita districts.

“They have fresh ideas for state reform, which has dragged on. I believe those ideas will help people consider our future and open the debate,” said Social Democrat secretary general Indrek Saar.

IRL has also been busy in its recruitment drive, with prominent Estonian Russian Viktoria Ladõnskaja joining the party. The Reform Party has also been active in the past months while the Center Party has so far failed to attract big names.
