Is the far right the mainstream in Estonia? The eurosceptic Conservative People’s Party (EKRE) made major gains in Estonia's parliamentary election with an anti-immigrant campaign warning of an upsurge in crime. (First aired 13 March 2019)
The euroskeptic Conservative People’s Party (EKRE) made major gains in Estonia's parliamentary election with an anti-immigrant campaign warning of an upsurge in crime. Is this the face of the new mainstream?
Estonia's conservative populists have taken aim at their media critics since joining the country's government. High-profile journalists have quit their jobs as a result, and now warn that press freedom may be in danger.
Three parties have inked a coalition agreement to form a new government in Estonia. The deal most likely spells the end of another party leader's chances of becoming Estonia's first female prime minister.
The far-right EKRE received nearly 18 percent of the vote in Estonia's parliamentary election. Political scientist Florian Hartleb talks to DW about the party's origins, and what its success means for Europe.
