Banker Indrek Neivelt, who in November stoked the tax reform debate, said many of Estonia's problems derive from bad leadership and the ruling Reform Party could do with a four-year break from power.

Speaking at an IRL-organized seminar, Neivelt said the international norm is a maximum of five to seven years in leadership positions, after that, experience shows people lose the spark.

“It is in the interest of all of us that people sometimes do other jobs. In that sense, it is in the interest of the Reform Party that they spend four years in opposition,” Neivelt said, pointing to the fact that the party has been in government since early 1999.

Neivelt said a strong leader attracts strong employees, a weak leader weak staff, and there has been much mismanagement lately.
