Estonia Election Results

Results of the Estonian elections – with some 99 per cent of the vote now counted – can be read here.

In many ways a close result – as Prime Minister Ansip’s margin of victory over his nearest rival, Edgar Savisaar (Centre Party), is quite a slim one. None the less, this result holds Savisaar at bay for the time being, and there is still a possibility that President Ilves may ask the IRL (Pro Patria/Res Public Alliance) to join the Reform Party in a coalition.

Postimees‘s Russian-language election coverage is here.
