The local Elections in Estonia

The local elections on October 15 were said to be the first test for the new coalition - at a time when the European attention was focused on Estonia due to its Presidency of the EU Council. In accordance with expectations, the Estonian Centre Party (Eesti Keskerakond) turned out to be the strongest force.

On June 20, Jüri Ratas and Xavier Bettel, the prime ministers of Estonia and Luxembourg, signed a treaty formalizing the founding of the world’s first digital embassy in Luxembourg.

The First Digital Embassy

During its EU Council Presidency, Estonia aims to implement a common digital internal market. On June 20 2017, Jüri Ratas and Xavier Bettel, the prime ministers of Estonia and Luxembourg, signed a treaty formalizing the founding of the world’s first digital embassy in Luxembourg. This embassy will enjoy the same immunity as conventional diplomatic representations do. The whole issue is considered to be a pilot project, not only for Estonia, but also beyond.
