TALLINN - The government at its sitting on Thursday is to nominate replacement member candidates of the Estonian delegation to the European Committee of the Regions.

The government at a sitting on Thursday is to discuss a proposal of the minister of public administration to appoint Juri Gotmans and Priit Vark as members of the Estonian delegation to the European Committee of the Regions, government spokespeople said.

Due to the results of the local government council elections, Haanja rural municipality mayor Juri Gotmans and member of the Hiiu rural municipality council Georg Linkov lost their mandates in the committee. This is why Estonia's two replacement member seats in the committee are empty.

The council of the Association of Estonian Cities and Rural Municipalities (AECM) has made a proposal to nominate member of the Voru city council Juri Gotmans and Paide Mayor Priit Vark as the Estonian delegation's replacement member candidates.
