The opposition centre-right Reform party has won Estonia's general election, beating the ruling Centre. Reform, led by former MEP Kaja Kallas, took about 29% of the vote to 23% for the Centre in Sunday's ballot. Meanwhile the far-right Conservative People's Party of Estonia (EKRE), which has called for a referendum on EU membership, came a close third.

Ms Kallas - set to be Estonia's first female prime minister - said all coalition options were on the table, she went on to insist EKRE were "not a choice for us". Nearly a quarter of Estonia's 881,000 eligible voters cast their ballots by e-voting. Results from e-voting gave Reform an even higher score.
