Reform Party MP and former Chief Justice Rait Maruste has said he will quit politics and retire from public life after his term ends in 2015.

“I will soon reach retirement age and why should I hang around [Parliament]? That is my decision,” Maruste told uudised.err.ee today.

He said he needs to look after his health, having suffered a stroke in March of last year.

The MP, who turns 60 this month, currently chairs the Parliament's Constitutional Committee.

Maruste was the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court between 1992 and 1998, which he followed by a two year stint as a judge at the European Court of Human Rights before joining the Reform Party in 2010.
