UN Migration Pact: Estonian parliament votes in favor of the Pact

On Monday, 26.11.2018, evening, the Riigikogu (the Estonian Parliament) adopted a declaration in support of the UN Compact on Migration. After the parliament’s sitting dragged on for hours, with parties demanding recesses time and again, 41 members voted in favour and 27 against.

The Estonian government will not discuss the UN Compact on Migration any further and the only question remaining is who will represent Estonia (and “in which context” – whatever it means) in Marrakesh in December, during the UN ceremony for the Pact.
