Slovakia voted in Zuzana Caputova as their country’s first female president by garnering 58.4% of the votes on Saturday.
The 45-year-old lawyer and anti-corruption campaigner said after the victory that you can win without attacking your opponents.
Zuzana Caputova won the election through progressive values and political reforms from a positive campaign.
Through her slogan “stand up to evil” Slovakia’s first female president directed her attack on her opponents calling for the need of humanism, solidarity and truth.
Zuzana Caputova is best known as civil servant who participated actively in the anti-government protest following the death of a journalist Jan Kuciak and his fiancé Martina Kusnirova.
During the run-off, she knocked off party opponent Maros Sefcovic who is also a EU energy commissioner.
Sefcovic emphasized during his campaign that Slovakia is a Christian country, an attack on Caputova on her views on LGBT and abortion policies.
Following the defeat, Sefcovic congratulated Caputova and even said that she deserves a bouquet of flowers.
