EU Lisbon Treaty ratification: Estonia

Prime minister Andrus Ansip has told a press conference that government of Estonia is going to consider the Treaty of Lisbon next Thursday, 31 January 2008, and that he expects the Riigikogu, the Estonian Parliament, to ratify the Reform Treaty during the first half of this year.

According to the European Policy Centre (EPC) parliamentary ratification needs a simple majority, thought to be easily achieved, since all parties have declared their support for the Treaty.
