The pandemic and inflation stopped being a problem, Robert Fico’s attacks remained.  What were Zuzana Čaputová’s five years like?

In less than two weeks, Slovakia will elect a new head of state. Among the main candidates are Parliament Speaker Peter Pellegrini from Hlas and civic candidate Ivan Korčok, who is supported by the opposition and the current head of state.

The mandate of the first president, Zuzana Čaputová, ends in the summer. He was accompanied by challenging domestic and foreign events such as the war in Ukraine, the global covid-19 pandemic and the terrorist attack on Zámocká street in Bratislava.

During the five years of her mandate, she met with five prime ministers, and was involved in the formation of the historically first official government in Slovakia.

Zuzana Čaputová took office on June 15, 2019, when she succeeded Andrej Kiska as head of state. Five governments accompanied the president in office, she took over as Prime Minister Petr Pellegrini. Later, after the parliamentary elections, she appointed Igor Matovič as Prime Minister, whose coalition could not handle the coalition’s contradictions.

Contradictions between the coalition parties were also a problem for the next government consisting of OĽaNO, SaS, Sme rodina and MPs who ran for the party For the People. The prime minister at the time, Eduard Heger, lost his mandate to govern after changes in several government positions and his departure to a new party.
