Estonian pm attributes party’s good poll showing to team spirit
The rise in the Center Party’s popular approval rating to 30 per cent is a result of the team spirit of the government of Center, the Social Democratic Party (SDE) and Pro Patria and Res Publica Union (IRL), Prime Minister Juri Ratas, chairman of Center, said in his comments on the latest poll results. Ratas said he is genuinely pleased that the people of Estonia continue to support the government’s day-to-day work towards a stronger and more united society that takes into account all its members equally, spokespeople for the Center Party said.
“We are working in the government as one team and this does not go unnoticed for the voters,” said Ratas, commenting on the 49 per cent combined rating of the three government parties against 40 per cent for parties of the opposition.
The Center Party, senior member of the ruling threeparty coalition, maintained its status as the most popular party, with a rating of 30 per cent in April, up one point from 29 per cent in March, according to a poll taken by Turu-uuringute AS for public broadcaster ERR. The rating of SDE was unchanged at 11 per cent and the rating of IRL climbed to 8 per cent.
