EU commissioner for the digital single market and former prime minister Andrus Ansip commented the impending leadership change in the Reform Party, saying that party chairman Hanno Pevkur "didn't manage" to get the job done. Ansip also said that he had no ambitions regarding his party.

"In life, if you're elected leader, then lead, don't moan and say that the people you're leading are bad," Ansip said about Pevkur's time as Reform Party chairman. Pevkur had complained too much, and "naturally" people grew weary of it, he added.

Ansip told ERR's Uudis+ radio news magazine on Wednesday that it wasn't clear yet who would be the party's next leader. "Whether or not it's going to be Kaja Kallas, who stands to get even more votes than Hanno Pevkur did, who am I to say," he added.

There were several candidates, Ansip said. But if Kaja Kallas should end up being the only candidate, naturally she would have his support.

"If there should be others, I'd have to think about it, but in principle I think that Kaja Kallas would make a good leader of the Reform Party," he added.

Ansip also confirmed that he has no ambitions himself concerning his party. "All of the speculations I've read in the papers that now Ansip will be chairman again, they're completely baseless. My time is over, I've held that office and I've said as well that I won't test the patience of the Estonian people as prime minister again," Ansip said.
