The board of the Centre Party decided on Thursday evening which of its members to put up as candidates in the European elections on 26 May. In which order the candidates will end up on the party's list is up to the extended board, which is convening on Saturday.
The party's candidates are:
- Tallinn Mayor Taavi Aas
- Tallinn Deputy Mayor Vadim Belobrovtsev
- Deputy President of the Riigikogu Enn Eesmaa
- Member of the European Parliament Igor Gräzin
- Former chairman of the Pärnu City Council, entrepreneur Andrei Korobeinik
- Chairman of the Tartu City Council Aadu Must
- Recently reelected MP Anneli Ott
- Party member Erki Savisaar
- Member of the European Parliament Yana Toom
In which order the candidates will rank on Centre's list—which, in turn, defines the order in which they are elected—will be decided on Saturday.
Igor Gräzin, formerly a founding member of the Reform Party, followed Kaja Kallas (Reform) in Brussels after she returned to Estonia following her election to party chairwoman. Mr Gräzin left the Reform Party earlier this year.
