Alemka Markotic, the director of the aforementioned Zagreb clinic, went from total anonymity to being a public figure in a very short amount of time following the novel coronavirus’ arrival in Croatia, and it hasn’t always been easy for her to cope with. Now about to be crowned Zagreb woman of the year, it seems the toil has been worth it.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, Professor Alemka Markotic, the soon to be Zagreb woman of the year, will be handed the award by the City of Zagreb. The Croatian capital hands out this award each and every year, this year there were twelve candidates, among others was Natalija Prica, a young MP who is regularly seen in the company of late Zagreb Mayor Milan Bandic, 24sata reports.

The session of the parliamentary Committee for Public Recognitions will be held on Monday, and then Professor Markotic will be officially voted as Zagreb woman of the year following her efforts in fighting the coronavirus pandemic and dedicating her every waking moment to that cause throughout pandemic-dominated 2020.

The result of course still needs to be confirmed by the Assembly, but it was confirmed by several interlocutors, HDZ and the late Milan Bandic, who all hold power in Zagreb in partnership, that they had all agreed on the winner being Alemka Markotic.

In addition to the recognition as Zagreb woman of the year, this award also brings 50,000 kuna to Dr Alemka Markotic’s pocket.
