The electoral system has no threshold for access to the EP. However according to the latest polls it is expected that only four parties will win seats.

The Estonian Reform Party of Kaja Kallas and the Estonian Center Party of the Prime Minister Jüri Ratas are expected to elect 2 MEPs each, while the Social Democrats of Estonia and the far-right Conservative People’s Party of Estonia (EKRE), which is a partner of the coalition government, 1 seat each.
