Keit Pentus-Rosimannus, who recently resigned as the foreign minister, has taken a seat at Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee, causing a number of changes.

Pentus-Rosimannus forced Valdo Randpere, also of the Reform Party, from the Foreign Affairs Committee.

Randpere has now joined the Legal Affairs Committee, sending fellow party member Igor Gräzin to the Rural Affairs Committee.

Gräzin, who would have become a European Parliament member, had Urmas Paet, not Marina Kaljurand, been named as Pentus-Rosimannus's replacement at the foreign ministry, has in turn forced Meelis Mälberg to the Environment Committee.

Ivi Eenmaa has left the Environment Committee, and also the Parliament as she was Pentus-Rosimannus's initial replacement member, when Pentus-Rosimannus became a minister.
