After the much talked-about departure of Ruta Arumäe, the economic adviser to Prime Minister Taavi Rõivas, three more advisers to the PM have left their posts.

Tiina Ansip, the media and communications adviser and daughter of former prime minister Andrus Ansip, has left for the private sector. Sven Kirsipuu, financial affairs adviser, and Märt Volmer, foreign affairs adviser, have both left, Eesti Päevaleht reported.

Kirsipuu is likely to return to the Finance Ministry, where he worked before Rõivas invited him to become his adviser. Volmer will become the Estonian Ambassador to Denmark.

Arumäe piled criticism on the government after leaving her post, saying that the nation's economic policy lacks vision, and the nation is governed by an Excel table. Former finance minister Jürgen Ligi said in reply that Arumäe failed to express her opinions when it mattered.

Currently, the PM has seven advisers, although Kirsipuu and Volmer are still listed.
