Estonia’s ruling pro-NATO coalition ‘wins’ tight election

Europe’s youngest prime minister Taavi Roivas has claimed victory in Estonia after his pro-NATO party took the lead in Sunday’s general election.

Roivas who is 35 years old, is head of the centre-right Reform Party which is the senior partner in the country’s current coalition. After two-thirds of the votes had been counted, the party had polled around 29 percent.

Opposition leader Edgar Savisaar and his pro-Kremlin Centre Party were trailing on 21 percent.
