You can call a party congress also a pre-election marketing stunt :)

Anything particular? :) As far as I remember the whole idea was that this thing was a big stunt and nothing came of it, even though people might have hoped that something will change. Plus they said just this word as if everyone knew what it is and as if it was something particular.

Now I understood what you meant: the Ühtne Eesti Suurkogu, is it right? It was irony about Estonian political life.
