With Zuzana Caputova enters in Slovakia, a bearer of hope on the political stage. In Central Europe comparable was no longer the case, since Vaclav Havel President of Czechoslovakia. The liberal and Pro-European candidate Caputova won the election in Slovakia by the first female head of state of your country. It is a jolt – a jolt that was long overdue. He comes from a people that many of its politicians enough. One of them of murder is accused of a journalist and his fiance.
Now the rebellious citizens have managed to bring a President with a Catholic-influenced Slovakia very liberal attitude to office: a 45-year-old divorcee with two teenage daughters; a politically inexperienced lawyer, which occurs as factual as friendly and for the protection of the environment, minorities, socially Weak, and against the abuse of children is committed.
Slovakia, with its five and a half million inhabitants, in front of a roll-over? Caputova promises Fairness, justice and decency. Everything indicates that it is serious. A new, softer tone without personal attacks, without polemic has you beat already. Supporters and commentators quote now and again, often the set of Vaclav Havel: "truth and love triumph over lies and hatred." Caputova is based on the legendary former President and the country the Czech Republic is in the neighbor model. A new, unbiased Generation should now take, in the case of Slovakia, the Chance to fulfill Havel's legacy. It is in your Hand, to the authoritarian state, the swamp of the Nineties, the political aberrations, finally and for a fairer political System.
The expectations that are set in Caputova, are overwhelming. So hope to their supporters that the Era of Robert Ficos ends of the saw through the protests a year ago to resign as Prime forced, but as Chairman of the government party Smer-SD continues to be pulling the strings. Now Fico stretches out his Finger to the chairmanship of the constitutional court. As President Caputova will not agree to the. You want to take advantage of your representative office to a new style of politics that will also RUB off on the government.
depth of voter turnout
the hope for change is tempered, however, when looking at the turnout: only 42 percent. Obviously, the mood of optimism that emanates from Caputova and the movement of Progressive Slovakia, many people are not is still. To convince you that change is possible, will be the biggest task of the new President. A break does not mean your choice. But it is a clear and encouraging Signal for a fresh start.
