Üldinfo

I wish that Estonia were a rule of law with deliberative democracy, that our people were healthier and happier, and that the Estonian language and culture would develop. My priorities are that education and research are valued more, medicine becomes patient-centred and more knowledge-based decision-making is used in politics.
