The article offers a political outlook for Estonia for 2007, focusing on the parliamentary elections in March. It is expected that the governing coalition will unlikely share power, because of policy rifts between the Reform Party, led by Prime Minister Andrus Ansip, and the Centre Party, which has an alliance with the People's Union. It is seen that the prospect of the next government being a coalition of centre-right parties has increased.
