Issues relating to welfare and security of people have always mattered to me. I have served the people of Estonia as the Minister of Social Affairs, the Minister of Justice and the Minister of the Interior, thus I am the most interested in the security and safety policy of Estonia. I also think that the fundamental rights and freedoms of people are very important. Free self-realisation and the right to make decisions freely are the inalienable rights of every one of us, and I take this as the basis in my work in the Riigikogu.
