Ojuland's party names just 36 candidates for Parliament ({{commentsTotal}})

The Party of People's Unity has named 36 candidates for the March 1 elections, as two of its main rivals for a potential fifth party slot in Parliament both name the maximum 125.

Party Chairman Kristiina Ojuland told ETV the party will introduce new faces to politics.

The party will not run a outdoor political ad campaign, citing financial woes, and will focus on social media and a self-produced TV clip.

The party will have candidates in all of the 12 electoral districts, with Ojuland herself running in Lääne-Viru County, where she has run for Parliament, under the Reform Party, since 1992.
