The governing Estonian party, the Reform Party, won the elections for the Riigikogu (the Estonian Parliament) on Sunday with a narrow lead over the biggest opposition party, the Centre Party. This means that current prime minister Taavi Roivas will remain the country’s leader. Altogether six parties will be represented in the 101-member parliament this time.

After all 574,108 votes had been counted, it emerged that Reform Party had collected 27.7 per cent of the votes, which gives it 30 seats in the 101-seat Riigikogu.
