After Slovenia elected its first female president, Natasa Pir Musar, on Sunday's election, Ljubljana residents put their hopes in the new government, as captured on footage on Monday.

"I am satisfied with the performance, the correct dialogue of all the candidates and the two yesterday's rivals. The result is what the will of the people has shown, and I think this should be reflected in further political life”, said a resident of the Slovenian capital.

Another local said to be very happy 'that Slovenia got a female president'.

"I think that Pirc Musar is a 'connecting' lady, a lady that is well familiar with things, and I think that in case of injustice, whatever the case she will not be quiet, which is very important for a president role", she said.

Lawyer Natasa Pirc Musar was elected in the second round of the presidential election, running as an independent candidate against conservative former Foreign Minister Anze Logar. Pic Musar reportedly obtained a share of around 54 per cent of the votes.
