The Internet, which is one of the most important sources of information today, is a quick and convenient means for political parties to introduce themselves.

The portal of the Centre of the Estonian State Network is a gate to most homepages of Estonian state agencies and organisations, including political parties. Most of the political parties represented in the Riigikogu use the means offered by the Internet to introduce themselves. Homepages of political parties offer general information about the party, its programme, structure, connections to the institutions of state power, and reflect the activities of the party. Information on the Riigikogu factions is available on the Riigikogu homepage at or on the homepage of the respective party under the relevant section.
