TALLINN, March 1. /TASS/. Estonia’s ruling Reform Party is leading the Sunday’s elections to the Riigikogu, the national parliament, with 32.7% of the vote, the National Electoral Committee said after counting ballot papers from 291 out of 547 polling stations.
"This result guarantees the party 37 seats in the 101-seat parliament," the National Electoral Commission said. The Reform Party is followed by the Social Democratic Party, which is a member of the ruling coalition along with the Reform Party, with 17.1% of votes.
The Centrist Party, seen by experts as a possible frontrunner, is scoring only 13.8% of votes and is unlikely to change its opposition status.
About 900,000 Estonian citizens who have reached 18 years of age have the right to vote. On the face of it, some 87,800 holders of the so-called gray passports, most of them native speakers of Russian who are 'stateless persons', are deprived of the right to vote. People who are denied the right to vote make up 6.5% of Estonia's population.
