Estonian PM and WEF Member Resigns

Members of the Isamaa political party have repeatedly said they will join the coalition if Kaya Kallas steps down as prime minister. Did the party demand this now, when the coalition agreement was born? Kallas said that Isamaa did not require this.

“I made this proposal myself, because if I simply appointed new ministers, there would be a lot of noise and discontent,” said Kallas, adding that the Riigikogu must be convened for this.

Kallas said that they wanted to form a new government as soon as possible, but it might be difficult to convene the Riigikogu as the summer holidays had already begun.

The talks ended with a very ambitious coalition agreement. Does this suit the Reform Party? “Good agreements are always agreements with which everyone cannot be completely satisfied, and this is a fact,” Kallas said and added that all political parties had to make compromises.

“It is important that in the current situation we have a functioning majority government, and it is important for me that we reform Estonian-language education and take the necessary steps to help people cope with the crisis,” the Prime Minister said.

The new coalition will greatly increase people’s sense of economic security and the ability of families to cope. Child allowances will rise to 80 euros, benefits for families with many children – up to 600 euros, and the tax-free minimum wage will increase to 654 euros. To mitigate the impact of high energy prices, an electricity market reform is being prepared, which provides for the possibility to buy electricity on the OTC market during the heating period as a universal service, which will be additionally compensated in the amount of 50 EUR/MWh.

In 2024, the transition to Estonian-language education will begin in kindergartens, in the first and fourth grades. In addition, funding for higher education will be increased already this year by another 10 million euros.

As previously reported, the distribution of ministerial posts is planned for the coming weekend.
