A poll by TNS Emor confirms the results of the ERR commissioned study that Center Party continues to be the most popular party in Estonia.

Were the elections to take place tomorrow, the Center Party would get 25, Reform Party 21, Social Democrats (SDE) 16, Free Party 15, EKRE 11, and IRL 8 percent of the votes, Postimees reported.

“The lead the opposition has gained over coalition parties shows that voters are not happy with the work of the 'hesitation coalition' and want a different, more human centered politics,” chairman of the Center Party Edgar Savisaar said about the ratings.

ERR published the results of the monthly poll by Turu-uuringute AS as week ago. Those gave Center Party 25, Reform Party 20, SDE 14, Free Party 13, EKRE 10 and IRL 7 percent of the votes.

The results of the two polls differed for October, when the ERR-commission poll found that the Center Party enjoyed the support of 33 percent of voters, whereas the one done for BNS showed their rating to be just 23 percent.
