73% Of Estonian Residents Dissatisfied With Political Situation In The Country

Estonian Prime Minister Mart Laar expects scientists to come up with the plan of long-term actions. He said as much on Monday speaking in parliament in the framework of an open-door day. Thus he responded to the Sunday address by 26 scientists'-- experts in social science, in which they express their concerns over the imminent political, social and ethical crisis. The address blames Estonian authorities for distancing themselves from the people. The scientists assert that two thirds of Estonian children are brought up in poverty, people do not feel secure and many youngsters are willing to leave the country. Most important economic and strategic decisions are being taken with no account of possible social consequences. By social scientists' estimate, Estonian residents have never so negatively assessed the political situation in the country beginning from 1995, with 73 percent of them showing no satisfaction with the current state of affairs. Sociologists warn that 'we should bear in mind that if the split between government and the moral is not overcome, our state is running the risk of being a failure'.
