Kersti Sarapuu was elected the new chairman of the Center Party's parliamentary group on Monday, replacing Kadri Simson.

Siret Kotka-Repinski will continue as vice-chairman and Andrei Korobeinik has been elected as second vice-chairman.

Kersti Sarapuu is also the chairman of the party's council. Siret Kotka-Repinski has been a member of both the previous two Riigikogus and is the leader of the centre party faction in Lääne-Viru County.
