Estonia deserves the opportunity to become wise, wealthy, and happy. It will be necessary to reach a new level for this. I stand for the development of my hometown Pärnu and the whole Pärnu County, and the interests of the people of Pärnu. I wish that Estonia would win war without engaging in war, and that all people had a decent life in Estonia. The Riigikogu will have to take back its power, and the general government will have to come out of its comfort zone and turn its face towards the people because the work that is important for Estonia’s future will actually have to be done.
