Having previously stated that the primary aim of the Estonia 200 political movement was not to start a new party, Kristina Kallas, member of the supervisory board of Estonia 200, made remarks on Thursday that imply the movement is indeed moving in that direction.
"I hope we will take part in elections, not just with one-sentence promises, but with solid visions," Ms. Kallas said in a speech at Thursday's seminar, which was aimed at introducing the political movement.
Ms. Kallas furthermore stated that a decision regarding running in elections and founding a party will be made ''in the coming days,'' it is reported.
One high profile figure already committed to Estonia 200 is Margus Tsahkna, a former government minister who is currently an independent member of the Riigikogu, after leaving Isamaa/Pro Patria in July 2017.
