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.
