Publication Detail
Legislative Debates in the Estonian Riigikogu
Abstract
In this chapter, we analyze the speechmaking among Estonian MPs between 2011 and 2019. We find that those holding parliamentary office in committees and party groups enjoy privileged floor access and are more active speakers compared to regular MPs. Opposition backbenchers, enjoying more freedom or eager to make their mark, participate more actively in parliamentary debates than their governing party colleagues. We also find that members of the coveted EU Affairs Committee as well as MPs from smaller parties and those with a greater personal electoral appeal (based on preference votes) speak more actively. The impact of gender, age and legislative experience on speech activism is less clear.
