MP Oudekki Loone was confirmed as the Center Party’s new secretary general during the party’s Board of Directors meeting yesterday.

This was the second attempt to confirm a new secretary general for the party, as last Friday the Board of Directors did not approve Loone, who had been nominated for the position by party chairman Edgar Savisaar.

Yesterday, however, Loone was confirmed with a 10-4 vote in her favor.

The Center Party’s longtime secretary general Priit Toobal notified the party in a statement last Monday that he would be stepping down from his position.

Loone told ETV’s nightly news broadcast “Aktuaalne kaamera” that first and foremost she would like to gain clarity on the party’s financial matters.

“Certainly I will check first thing what our financial situation is,” explained Loone. “As a matter of fact, there are enough financially literate people on our executive board that we discuss these matters there as well. We discussed that today — the fact that that is clear enough to us — but I agree that things that are clear to us may not be clear to the public.”
