Zuzana Caputova has been sworn in as “Slovakia's” first female President. She is an Anti-corruption campaigner who was fighting for the impunity and champion justice in the country which was shaken by a journalist's murder in last year.

Zuzana Captiva was sworn in as the first female president of which country?

The swearing-in ceremony as the President took place before Constitutional Court chair ‘Ivan Fiacan’ during a ceremonial parliamentary session held in Bratislava. Zuzana Caputova is the 5th President in the modern Slovak history. She was elected for the post in March.

Caputova's election represented in just contrast to a European shift towards the Populist and Nationalist Parties of Slovakia. Caputova, fight against an illegal landfill in her home town and earned her the nickname of "Slovakia's Erin Brockovich" after the American environmentalist portrayed by Julia Roberts in a 2000 film. It also called on for the European Union to become a leader against the battle fighting for climate change.

On March 31, 2019, Zuzana Caputova, the 45-year-old lawyer and political activist who never held state office, became the first woman to sworn in as the President of Slovakia. Caputova is a proud European citizen who extended her support for minority rights and does not shy away from controversial stances, like her support for the rights of gay, including the adoption of children by the same-sex couples. However, she was able to do the same in a way that many are still under deeply conservative country did not find threatening, perhaps offering a model for others.

Caputova, with her effort to fight for justice, made her the reputation as a pro-environment lawyer and anti-graft crusader. When she took part in the resulting protest that forced then-Prime Minister Robert Fico to resign. For this, 5 people have been charged over the double murder, including Slovak businessman Marian Kocner. Many believe Kocner has ties to Fico's Smer-SD party. However, the entrepreneur has denied the allegation of any wrongdoing.
