The council of Estonia’s Social Democratic Party (SDE) on Saturday approved the coalition agreement with the Center Party and the Pro Patria and Res Publica Union (IRL). The party’s leadership approved the ministerial candidates of the party on the same day.

According to chairman of the party council Jüri Morozov, the new government will make it possible to introduce changes that will focus on the well-being and better future of all people.

According to Morozov, the new coalition agreement includes a lot of things that SDE has previously paid attention to, whether this is raising the competitive ability of local governments, improving public transport, or developing the final kilometer of fast Internet connection.

“There are more of those things, but it is clear that the new government coalition will bring about changes that are good for Estonia,” Morozov said.

The leadership also approved the party’s ministerial candidates. Jevgeni Ossinovski is to continue as Minister of Health and Labour, and Indrek Saar as Minister of Culture, while Sven Mikser will become Minister of Foreign Affairs, Andres Anvelt Minister of the Interior, and Urve Palo Minister of Entrepreneurship and Economic Development.
