The electoral committee of the city of Tallinn has registered eight individual candidates and the lists of eight political parties and two electoral blocs with a total of 1,183 candidates for the city council elections.
The electoral committee rejected the applications of seven candidates. Regarding six of these candidates, their place of residence had not been registered in the city of Tallinn as of August 1, and one of the candidates had an unmet citizenship requirement.
