Riigikogu

Üldinfo

I dedicate myself, as a Member of the Riigikogu, to achieving the objectives listed in the programme of the Estonian Centre Party. I want to build up a country where everyone feels good living. A country where the middle classes hold the power. A country where most of the national wealth has been distributed equally among the majority of the population, instead of being concentrated in the hands of a privileged few. A country where involuntary lessees would be compensated for the damage done by the ownership reform. A country where every child has a full stomach.
