Ruling coalition broke apart after two out of three parties refused to work with PM Taavi Rõivas
Estonian coalition government may collapse by the end of the week. Two junior coalition partners - the Social Democrats and Pro-Patria and Res Publica Union - called on the prime minister to resign. The opposition also called for a vote of no confidence.
The government is blamed for weak tax and economic policy that causes economic sluggishness.
"The Estonian state leadership needs new energy and fresh ideas," said Jevgeni Ossinovski, chairman of the Estonian Social Democrats, according to Guardian.
The voting is scheduled on Wednesday, November 9. In order to be successful, the opposition needs to gain 51 votes. It has only 42 seats in parliament.
