Prime Minister Andrus Ansip said in Parliament's question time that he has not yet decided whether to run for another term as the chair of his party next summer.
"I said on February 23 this year that if this coalition's will for cooperation should decay before the next elections, I will not form a new government, and that is all that I have said so far,“ Ansip said. "I have certainly not said that I don't plan to run for another term as Reform Party chair. Whether I will run or not, that I have yet to thoroughly consider,“ he said.
The prime minister said in an Independence Day speech in February that some of his fellow compatriots have grown tired of an overly stable government and especially of the prime minister, and that he would not form the next government.
"I have made clear that if the government's capacity for work or will for cooperation for some reason ceases before the next parliamentary elections, then my time as prime minister will come to an end. I will not form the next government, neither before nor after the new parliamentary elections. Worthy successors will be found; there is no doubt in that,“ Ansip said in that speech.
The Reform Party is slated to elect a new chairman next June. The next parliamentary elections take place in 2015.
