TALLINN, ESTONIA: Taavi Roivas, the former Estonian prime minister says he will step down as deputy parliament speaker after reports of a "wild party" in Kuala Lumpur last month.

Roivas publicly apologised for improper conduct during a Sept 21 party in Kuala Lumpur, where he headed a trade to Singapore and Malaysia.

This provided indirect confirmation of a report by Eesti Paevaleht, an Estonia newspaper, that delegation members including Roivas behaved improperly toward women at the party. – Wires
