Estonia: Parliament rejects special committee to investigate PM Kallas

Estonia’s parliament, the Riigikogu, has voted against forming a committee to investigate the Russian business interests of Prime Minister Kaja Kallas’s husband, ERR reports. Altogether 55 MPs voted against and 16 in favour of setting up the committee. Earlier, the parliament’s constitutional committee rejected the idea of a special committee, which would have been able to summon people and demand data and documents. Meanwhile, 66% of Estonians still think that Kallas should resign due to the scandal, according to the latest Norstat poll for the Institute of Societal Research (YI), ERR reports. Another 27% thought that Kallas should not resign, while 7% were undecided.
