Estonia’s far-Right EKRE party threaten election upset

Estonia’s surging far-Right is threatening to bring down the country’s liberal government in elections that mark the spread of populism to the furthest corners of the EU.

The country’s extremist EKRE party has more than doubled its support ahead of today’s election, threatening a significant upset to the country’s two main parties.

The party, which is set to increase its share of the parliament’s 101 seats from 8 to 20, has previously called for an “Estxit” referendum, with recent successes mirroring the rise of right-wing populism across Europe and the US.
