slovakia's first female president. these opinion polls are not exit polls, i should stress that, they are opinion polls carried out in the last few days and released just minutes ago. they suggest that she has defeated the challenger, european commissioner, one of the six vice president of the commission, by a margin ofaround president of the commission, by a margin of around 55—45, perhaps a 60-40%. now, margin of around 55—45, perhaps a 60—40%. now, we will not know a more precise picture until the first results start coming on in the course of the evening. but it does look like, and feels like, here at the headquarters of her election campaign in bratislava's old market hall, that she is on course for victory this evening. taylor is a bit more about how significant her potential victory will be. —— tell us a bit more. well, zuzana ca putova —— tell us a bit more. well, zuzana caputova has offered, if nothing else, change. she has sensed, as a political outsider, someone with almost no political experience, that
the emergence of anger over the last few years has darkened. that really came to the four year ago with the murder of the investigative journalist. she says that was one of the impulses that led her to pursue a career in politics, and here she is just over a career in politics, and here she isjust over one year a career in politics, and here she is just over one year later said to become president. there is a lot of disgust, revulsion, really, in slova k disgust, revulsion, really, in slovak society, especially among younger, more urban, pro—eu voters at the course that this country has taken. a country that has seen corruption and crime reach proportions that she has described asa proportions that she has described as a kind of state capture. although it is a ceremonial position, she really wa nts it is a ceremonial position, she really wants to put an end to that and said slovakia on a new, different course. and how might this influence the politics of the region? where we are seeing more of a shift to write in countries like hungary and poland. -- is countries like hungary and poland. —— is shift to the right. it will be
seized upon by regional analysts and by the media, not only in this country but, as you say, across the region. in the czech republic, hungary, poland. it will be seized upon as proof that this idea that the wave of populism and conservative nationalism that we have seen in countries across the region is not unstoppable, and with the right candidates it can be turned back. certainly, the interpretation that some analysts are going to suggest that that is what is happened here in slovakia. but zuzana caputova, if she has won this evening, we do not know that she has, has her work cut out. slovakia is a deeply divided country, suffering from many of the same ills as countries throughout the region. it is herjob to begin healing those divisions. interesting times in slovakia. an egyptian security court has sentenced 18 men to life imprisonment for planning a suicide bombing on a coptic church
