Zuzana Caputova was sworn in as president of Slovakia, thus becoming the first female president of the country.

Axar.az reports citing foreign media.

The swearing-in took place before Constitutional Court chair Ivan Fiacan during a ceremonial parliamentary session held in Bratislava.

Caputova gave her first speech in office, saying she does not want to rule from the office but to serve people and Slovakia. "By taking the constitutional oath, I assume all the commitments and obligations of the public service. I haven't come to rule, I've come to serve citizens, inhabitants, Slovakia," said Caputova, adding that she offers expertise, emotion and a healthy activist interest.
