Viviane Reding is the vice president of the European Commission, responsible for the areas of justice, fundamental rights and citizenship. She visited Estonia last week. ERR journalist Mart Linnart took the chance for an interview. They discussed problems in the Eurozone, the commission as an "economic government," and an ambitious new European treaty. Despite Reding's call for greater economic and political integration in the EU, she expressed skepticism over the notion of a "United States of Europe."
A total of 25% of voting-age citizens in Estonia consider the coming of new political parties definitely or rather necessary, but up to 15% of voters, a significant portion of which consist of current Free Party voters, would vote for Estonia 200 specifically, according to the results of a recent survey.
