Slovakia elects liberal pro-equality, pro-choice Woman as President

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-47756368

Quote:
Aged 45, a divorcee and mother of two, she is a member of the liberal Progressive Slovakia party, which has no seats in parliament.

In a country where same-sex marriage and adoption is not yet legal, her liberal views have seen her promote LGBTQ+ rights.

Anti-corruption candidate leads Slovak poll
The political novice bucking Europe's populist trend
The opponent she defeated, Mr Sefcovic, is vice president of the European Commission.

Challenges ahead
By Rob Cameron in Bratislava

Saturday night did feel like a moment. Addressing crowds of supporters in her impromptu election HQ at Bratislava's Habsburg-era indoor market, Zuzana Caputova quietly extolled values that now seem to come from a bygone political age: compassion, tolerance, truth.

But while liberals rejoice at what they see as proof the tide of populism in Central Europe can be turned, some urge caution.

One analyst said darkly within hours of her election: "Expect Fico to launch a campaign against her right away, before June's inauguration."

He added that parliament would seek to stymie her liberal agenda even before she took office, for example by passing legislation to make same-sex marriage difficult if not impossible.

But, he said, her appeal to voters remained strong.

"Viktor Orban [the Hungarian PM] attacked her hard from Budapest," he said. "But I'm hearing most ethnic Hungarians [10% of Slovakia's population] voted for her anyway."
So does this mean Slovakia = No longer EE confirmed?

To think that Slovakia was basically a glorified balkvnt country only 15 years ago to this. btw lol at Orban losing his shit

I guess Slovakia is finally more Liberal than Czech Republik (AKA Czechia) who's far right leader is a Japanese dude

but most importantly of all to readers of this thread will Slovakia now finally recognize Kosovo?

last week the Slovak nationalist government made a new law according to which the playing or singing of foreign national anthems in public events have as consequence a hefty fine

that was obviously directed at the DAC Dunaszerdahely /Dunajska Streda foci klub who play the hungarian anthem at every game

so, of course the magyar ethnics wouldn‘t vote Fico and his lot

Question, if you kick the Russians out would Estonia be more or less Mongol?

Mongol ranking:

1) Észtország, speak Mongol and have finno-Mongol DNA, due to isolation and inbreeding

2) Oroszok, full finno-Mongolic DNA, although speak Slav, geographically also on Mongol territory

3) Magyarok, lesser Mongolugric DNA, but full Mongol speakers, saddles too

4) Tóth, DNA same as with southern saddlers, the slav speak takes away Mongol points

5) Bolgár, not sure about their Mongol status, basically slav speak Türks
