The extraordinary session of the Riigikogu continued today with the second round of voting of the election of President of the Republic where Siim Kallas, Mailis Reps and Allar Jõks were candidates for President.
The President of the Republic was not elected in the second round of voting because none of the candidates received the required two-thirds majority of votes of the membership of the Riigikogu, that is, the support of at least 68 members of the Riigikogu.
At the secret ballot, Siim Kallas received 45 votes, Mailis Reps 32 votes and Allar Jõks 21 votes.
One ballot paper was unmarked. 99 members of the Riigikogu took part in the voting.
The extraordinary session of the Riigikogu will continue today at 4 p.m. with the third round of voting of the election of the President of the Republic. Siim Kallas and Mailis Reps who received the greatest number of votes in the second round will be candidates for President.
