The Riigikogu passed with 56 votes in favour the Act on Amendments to the Local Government Council Election Act (450SE), initiated by the Constitutional Committee. The purpose of the amendments is to prevent changes in the principles of the election procedure which is in force immediately before the elections. The amendments retain eight electoral districts in Tallinn for the upcoming elections, as was the case in the previous local government council elections. The section which provides the ascertaining of the election results in local governments with several electoral districts was also amended. 30 members of the Riigikogu voted against the Act, nobody abstained. The Act enters into force on the day following the day of publication in the Riigi Teataja.
