Support for opposition Reform Party chairwoman Kaja Kallas and incumbent Prime Minister and Centre Party chairman Jüri Ratas as the next potential prime minister has tied.
According to a survey commissioned by daily Eesti Päevahelt and conducted by Turu-uuringute AS in May, 24% of the voting-age population each believed that Kallas and Ratas would be the best candidate for Estonia's next prime minister.
Two months ago, Kallas had an edge of 7%; last month, her lead on Ratas was 2%.
Among Estonian voters, Kallas was the most popular choice with the support of 28% of respondents, followed by Ratas with 19% and Conservative People's Party of Estonia (EKRE) chairman Mart Helme with 14% support.
Survey director Juhan Kivirähk noted that 13% percent of Reform Party voters would support Ratas as the next prime minister, while just 5% of Centre Party voters would support Kallas.
The number of undecided voters is also shrinking ahead of the Riigikogu election to take place in spring 2019.
