Jaanus Karilaid, deputy chairman of the Center Party, said that in the matter of a motion of no confidence against Minister of Economic Affairs Kadri Simson (Center), all the party has done so far is boast. Reform have no clear reason for their motion against Simson, Karilaid said.
Karilaid said that the Reform Party has for several months been seeking a basis for a motion of no confidence against Simson. He added that it is clear to see that it lacks content and the only aim of it is to draw attention away from their latest failures.
"There's talk of pigs, then public transport and everything else that can be written on paper for there to be anything at all to write down," Karilaid said in a press release, adding that the Reform Party also does not refrain from presenting lies that can be easily checked. "I suggest Reform Party members to think a little among themselves what the reason for a no confidence motion is. If they do not have any good ideas, a public competition for gathering ideas can be organized, so that there would be even slightly less boasting and slightly more logic."
"Claims of Reform Party members [Jurgen] Ligi and [Rein] Lang that free public transport will bring great income to one bus company is a false claim, which in my opinion should be taken to court. Bus companies participate in public tenders and receive exactly as much as they have offered, regardless of whether there are two or twenty people on the bus," Karilaid said and expressed wonder about how the Reform Party led the country for 17 year without knowing how the subsidization of county lines works.
Karilaid said that no bus company will receive advantages or additional income from free public transport, while a great number of people living in rural areas will benefit from it.
