Estonian PM resigns to form new government

Baku, July 14, AZERTAC

Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas resigned on Thursday in order to form a new government coalition in the Baltic country, according to Euronews.

She will convene an extraordinary sitting of the parliament tomorrow to ask for a "mandate for the new government coalition" with the small conservative Fatherland "Isamaa" party and the opposition Social Democratic Party.

Kallas said in a statement that in order to form a new government, the current one needed to resign.

The three parties together will have a majority in the 101-seat Riigikogu legislature.

The deal means that Kallas, Estonia’s first female prime minister, will avoid governing a one-party minority government.
