Mayor Edgar Savisaar said: "it's an extraordinary step in a number of senses. we find that the result will be to stem the tide of outflow of capital from estonia. we estimate that compared to the current foreign bank branches, customers will have more opportunity. services will be cheaper. […] i also think the tallinna ühistupank will change the overall attitudes in the financial sector and prove that domestic banking is again possible and can support the economy and offer beneficial solutions for clients."
...It was an interesting observation coming from the president, who himself nominates the candidate, and that raised questions for us," Savisaar said. "why did things go like it did with kallas? i'd say kallas took a risk [...] by turning his back on irl."
