TALLINN - Estonian Prime Minister Andrus Ansip said in an interview to Eesti Paevaleht that he has no intention of leaving Estonian politics after 2015, reports LETA. “It is not true that I intend to leave Estonian politics. I have no such plan,” Ansip said. “I will stay in politics; I don’t intend to – like Eesti Paevaleht wrote – leave to start babysitting my grandchildren in Tartu,” he added.
Ansip didn’t add anything more specific about continuing in politics.

In February last year Ansip said that some Estonians are tired of too stable a government and of the prime minister, and that he won’t be forming the next government. He later explained that he only meant a specific situation: should the government fall apart before the 2015 parliamentary elections.
