Estonia has only 1.3 million inhabitants and there might be maximum thousand people who come into question as Defence Minister.
Definetely. But I also see the need that I become Minister of Defense. I worked as a security, I served in the Defence Force and now I’m part of the Estonian Defense League. It is a paramilitary defense organisation whose aim is to guarantee our independence and our constitution. Estonia needs defence minister who comes from practice.
I know that too. I hope I will run for the Estonian Parliament next year and that I will have good chances to succeed.
Correct. I'm a member of our City Council in Voru and I'm the chairman of Vorumaa Young Social Democrates. I also attend the nationalwide assemblies of my party. It's clear that you have to position yourself.
At best, there are 999 people who say they will become Defence Minister if they get the offer. I have not met anyone yet, who says, "I want to become Defence Minister."
We rule in a coalition. I’ve met the former Minister of Defence with Anti Allas, the mayor of my city, and Anti immediately told him, "Kasper will be defence minister."
I do have and moreover I have a strategie: „If you aim to low, you will miss the target. If you aim high, you hit.
