Support for Eesti 200, meanwhile, continues to drop, according to the results of a poll commissioned by the NGO Institute for Societal Studies and conducted by Norstat.
According to the results of the latest poll, the coalition Reform Party had the support of 32 percent, opposition EKRE 21.9 percent and the coalition Center Party 17.8 percent of Estonian citizens eligible to vote.

The top three are followed in the rankings by the nonparliamentary Eesti 200 at 13.8 percent, the opposition Social Democratic Party (SDE) at 6.3 percent and the opposition Isamaa at 5.3 percent.
