Riigikogu

Üldinfo

I have worked in different political positions for the good of Estonia for more than 25 years. I have experience at the local government, national as well as the European level. I entered politics when the most important fight of my life began, the fight in the name of the restoration of the independence of Estonia. After that, I have always been fighting for a better and more caring Estonia. In view of my long work experience I feel that I have ideas and knowledge to apply in the Riigikogu.
