TALLINN - The Riigikogu is scheduled to take a new vote Wednesday on the pension reform bill that would make the accumulation of savings into a second-pillar pension fund voluntary, which President Kersti Kaljulaid refused to promulgate at the beginning of February.
The bill will be discussed and a new vote taken on it in a single sitting, Postimees reported.
In the previous ballot at the end of January which the government had tied to a confidence vote, the bill was passed in the 101-seat chamber by a vote of 56 to 45.
