Taavi Veskimägi, member of Parliament and Pro Patria and Res Publica Union (IRL) who has decided to leave politics, will become the new CEO of Elering, Eesti Energia’s power-grid operator, ERR News reports.

Veskimägi said he has decided to leave already now to prepare for new job.

“I want my leaving from politics to be undobious and now leave some questions in the air. The reason for my leaving isn’t in politics, but energetics,” Veskimägi said.

He’ll start new jobs from December 1, after current CEO’s Lembit Vali’s contract has ended. Peep Soone and Kalle Kilk continue in the management boards.
