Record number of women elected to Estonia's Riigikogu

News Category: 

A total of 30 women won seats at Sunday's Riigikogu election. This constitutes the best result for women in Riigikogu electoral history.

The Reform Party, which won the largest number of seats by far, also has the largest roster of women MPs, at 13, at the XV Riigikogu.

Twenty-eight women entered parliament after the 2019 elections, while in 2015 the figure was 24, meaning a trend for a growth here.

Note the final tally of MPs will be different, as government ministers and, for that matter, the prime minister, among holders of other political positions, do not sit in the Riigikogu.
