Members of the Riigikogu (Parliament of Estonia) formed the Estonia-Bulgaria Parliamentary Group. Mailis Reps was elected the Chairperson of the group, and Mihhail Stalnuhhin and Jaanus Marrandi were elected Deputy Chairpersons.

“The parliamentary group will create a good possibility for exchanging experience at the parliamentary level – for example, on presidencies. Recently Estonia took over the Chairmanship of the Council of Europe from Bulgaria, and the Bulgarians will hold the Presidency of the Council of the European Union after us,” Chairperson of the Estonia-Bulgaria Parliamentary Group Mailis Reps said.

“The experience of Bulgaria in solving some complicated problems may be useful also to Estonia. Considering the importance of tourism in the economy of that country, it is certainly interesting for Estonia,” Deputy Chairperson of the Parliamentary Group Mihhail Stalnuhhin noted.

Members of the Estonia-Bulgaria Parliamentary Group are: Mailis Reps (Chairperson), Mihhail Stalnuhhin (Deputy Chairperson), Jaanus Marrandi (Deputy Chairperson), Anneli Ott, Uno Kaskpeit, Kalvi Kõva, Ivari Padar, Tanel Talve, Vladimir Velman, Valeri Korb, Aadu Must, Rein Ratas, Keit Pentus-Rosimannus, Andre Sepp, Deniss Boroditš, Meelis Mälberg, Raivo Põldaru, Andres Herkel and Tarmo Tamm.

Through the parliamentary groups, the members of the Riigikogu can communicate with other national parliaments, carry out Estonia’s foreign policy, and promote our country around the world.

At the moment, the 13th Riigikogu has 50 parliamentary groups and 64 associations.
