1. About public service
Čaputová stressed the responsibility of those in power and the need for them to deserve the trust of their citizens.
“Otherwise we cannot make Slovakia the country that it can be, the country that we want it to be. Because I am convinced that the vast majority of citizens desire our republic to be the best possible Slovakia.”
2. We made it
The new president looked back at the recent history of Slovakia – the Velvet Revolution, the defeat of Mečiarism, the road to the EU and NATO. On all these occasions, the citizens of Slovakia have proved they can make it.
