Slovenian lawyer Nataša Pirc Musar has been elected as the country’s first female president. Significantly, in 2016, Nataša was made her lawyer in a case by Melania Trump, the former first lady of America. According to the report of the news agency Xinhua, Nataša Musar will take office on December 23, when the second term of the current President Borut Pahor will end.
Musser got 54 percent of the vote, after a count of nearly 98 percent on Sunday, while his rival Ange Loger got 46 percent.
In the first round of presidential elections held last month, Logar got the most votes out of seven candidates and Musar came second.
Musar is a former National Information Commissioner of the country with a lawyer.
She stood as an independent candidate but was supported by Prime Minister Robert Golob and the Social Democrats, one of her coalition partners.
