Populists, Conservatives Prepared to Form Govt in Estonia

Estonian populists sealed a coalition deal with two other political parties Saturday in a bid to take power, more than a month after the general election.

The Estonian Conservative People’s Party, or EKRE, which has gained increasing popularity since its establishment in 2012, said it will form a three-way majority government with the centrist Center Party and the conservative Fatherland.

The 15-member Cabinet, where each party is to hold five ministerial portfolios, would be led by Center’s leader, ex-Prime Minister Juri Ratas, who has held the top government post in the nation of 1.3 million since November 2016.
