President Kersti Kaljulaid invites party leaders to discuss situation
President Kersti Kaljulaid invited the leaders of Estonia’s six political parties in the Riigikogu for talks about the current situation, the Office of the President reported on Wednesday.
The people had given the parliament a mandate, and it was the duty of the Riigikogu to make use of this mandate, the president said in a statement. It was the parliament’s responsibility to quickly form a government that would continue to represent Estonia’s positions in matters of defense and security policy, Kaljulaid wrote.
The meetings will start with Taavi Rõivas, who is expected at the president’s residence in Kadriorg at 4 p.m. They will continue with Jüri Ratas (Center Party), Jevgeni Ossinovski (SDE), Margus Tsahkna (IRL), Andres Herkel (Free Party), and Mart Helme (EKRE).
