- Rõivas criticised by comrades-in-partyLocal NewsAt all-night Riigikogu sessions, stuff happens. Spontaneously, all by itself. There’s time for it, with the business of daytime out of the way. Thus, in run-up to the lengthy holidays this past weekend, in the long hours of the night, Reform Party faction at Riigikogu got quietly abuzz with the idea that, perhaps, their leader and Prime Minister Taavi Rõivas was wrong in not allowing Tallinn Television (TTV) to attend governmental press conferences.
