Slovakia Elects Zuzana Caputova As First Female President

Slovakia has elected its first female president, Zuzana Caputova, an anti-corruption lawyer who got into politics only a year ago.

Caputova defeated Maros Sefcovic, a high profile diplomat and and Slovakia’s EU commissioner who was also nominated by the governing party, 58% – 42%.

Caputova said the death of a journalist Jan Kuciak in February of 2018, was one of the reasons she decided to go into politics.

Kuciak was investigating links between politicians and organised crime when him and his fiancee Martina Kusnirovawere fatally shot.

Caputova is a member of the liberal Progressive Slovakia party, which has no seats in parliament.

She’ll be sworn in June 15th.
