The end of the Ansip era in Estonia

Text size Aa Aa

Estonia’s three-term prime minister has resigned to allow his party to chose a leader to take them into next year’s general election.

Andrus Ansip’s cabinet resigns with him. EU Commission Vice-President Slim Kallis has been chosen to replace him.

Ansip oversaw healthy growth, but the centre-right coalition he led is creaking under party funding scandals and voter fatigue.
