DescriptionCenter-left party formed after a split-up of the Popular Front of Estonia (dissolved in 1993) becoming, in effect, its successor. Party is one of Estonia's two largest (the other being the Estonia Reform Party).

Party began as the People's Centre Party (Rahva-keskerakond) changing its name to Estonian Centre Party [Eesti Keskerakond (EK)] on April 17, 1993.

Party defends Russian minority interests and has taken Euro-sceptic, pro-Russia positions at times in its history.

The EK chairman since November 5, 2016 (replacing Edgar Savisaar, the long-term leader of the party) is Estonia's Prime Minister since November 23, 2016, Jüri Ratas.
