The Estonian Centre Party (Estonian: Eesti Keskerakond) is a centrist and social-liberal political party in Estonia. The Centre Party is a member of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE). It has the largest membership of an Estonian political party, with over 14,000 members. It is often considered as personalist due to the strong influence of its chairman Edgar Savisaar. Vice chairmen of the party are Kadri Simson and Enn Eesmaa. The party was founded on 12 October 1991 from the basis of the Popular Front of Estonia after several parties split from it. At that time, the party was called People's Centre Party (Rahvakeskerakond) in order to differentiate from the smaller Rural Centre Party (Maa-Keskerakond). The Centre Party has become by far the most popular party among Russians in Estonia, being supported by up to 75% of ethnic non-Estonians.
