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.

Following the defeat, Sefcovic congratulated Caputova and even said that she deserves a bouquet of flowers.
