The European Commission’s vice-president for the digital single market, former Estonian prime minister Andrus Ansip (Reform), said on Tuesday in ERR's “Reporteritund” radio broadcast that he wasn't planning to run for a second term.

“This is my first and last time in office. I won't aspire to stay for longer,” Ansip said. “I’m at an age where it isn't reasonable for me to demand different positions or even to dream of different positions,” he added.

When asked where he saw himself in three years, when his present term as commissioner ends, Ansip said that he had been in office for only a year and a half. “Who knows what will happen in three and a half years," he added.

According to Ansip, he always focuses on his present tasks, and doesn’t worry about the future.
