Center Party names Tõnis Mölder new representative to party finance supervisory committee ({{commentsTotal}})

The Center Party’s Board of Directors chose Tõnis Mölder to replace Priit Toobal as the party’s representative to the Estonian Supervisory Committee on Party Financing (ERJK).

The party chose Juhan Hindov as its alternate member, the role Mölder himself was in before Priit Toobal, who had been previously elected to the supervisory committee, announced last Monday that he was stepping down from his position as the party’s secretary general and leaving politics altogether.

The ERJK consists of appointees of the Chancellor of Justice, the National Auditor, the National Electoral Committee, and one representative each of the political parties represented in the Riigikogu. The previous committee’s term ended at the end of April this year.
