Sunday Election forecasts: Centre Party

Certainly not what foreigners want to hear.

The Estonian dailies, Eesti Päevaleht and Postimees, have published poll results by Estonia’s two leading polling firms. Both polls predict that the Centre Party will win the elections to take place Sunday. According to one poll, the Centre Party is supported by 25 percent of respondents and the Reform Party by 19 percent. The second poll suggests the Centre Party would receive 35 seats in parliament with 31 going to Reform.

Foreigners, while not allowed to vote in Estonia’s elections, are not shy about voicing their opinions. The consensus seems to be that if the Centre Party would actually be allowed to implement its campaign promises (e.g. 1,600 euro per month salaries for public sector employees), it would throw the economy into a downward spiral.
