In my life, I have always been guided by the principle that all people, regardless of their gender, nationality or age, must be helped and valued. In the Riigikogu, I wish to continue work in the name of increasing the welfare of every person and returning our population to the path of growth. Estonia needs a policy that unites the society and takes our country forward, and where participatory democracy and a good listening skill are good practice.
