The president of Brazil (Portuguese: Presidente do Brasil), officially the president of the Federative Republic of Brazil (Portuguese: Presidente da República Federativa do Brasil) or simply the President of the Republic, is the head of state and head of government of Brazil.

Requirements

The national constitution says that a president be a native-born citizen of Brazil, at least 35 years of age, a resident of Brazil, a registered voter, and a member of a political party.[3]

Terms

The president of Brazil can only be president for a term of four years,[4] and may be re-elected for a second four term.[5] This two-term limit, however, is not for life—a former president who has served for two consecutive terms may run for the presidency again after at least one term has ended.[6]

Living former presidents
