Former EU commissioner and the Reform Party’s potential presidential candidate Siim Kallas said on Friday that he would remain in the race for the presidency and run for election in the Riigikogu as well as the electoral college.

Kallas said to daily Eesti Päevaleht on Friday that Marina Kaljurand’s suggestion that the party support his candidacy in the vote in parliament was something of a surprise. He had expected the party’s chairman to state his position in the matter first, and that the leadership would then make things clear.

He stressed that there are no deals behind Kaljurand’s suggestion. Especially if he should end up being one of the two candidates in the Riigikogu to gather enough votes to automatically move on to the electoral college, he didn’t see a reason to withdraw.
