Apparently Reform officially still get to attempt to form a coalition now, which is utterly pointless because Center, EKRE and Isamaa simply have a majority and Reform (therefore) won't get one.

They had only 44 I think, and Centre coalition 59 votes. So, I think it's pretty clear who will be in power.

Actually it's 56 for the Centre EKRE Isamaa coalition after departure of one Centre rebel Raimond Kaljulaid. Reform and SDE have 44 seats, and Raimond will probably support them - their candidates for the leadership of the Parliament got 45 votes.

Reform and Kallas have failed with their minority government attempt ...

Centre + EKRE + Isamaa are now in charge, after receiving majority approval in parliament.

 The new coalition government is intriguing in that it includes EKRE with its ethnic Estonian nationalism and the Centre with its support in the ethnic Russian community. I wonder if its a case of EKRE thinking these Slavic Estonians aren't so bad after all compared to all these non-European potential migrants.  In the 1990's wasn't the Austrian FPO against eastern Europeans coming into Austria, and now they don't seem as against them as they were since they are still European.

  Also read that EKRE wants Swiss style direct democracy reforms. Seems a common trend among right wing populist parties to support this, which makes sense as they would probably have a better chance of getting more parts of their agenda through with direct referenda on some issues.
