The President of Cyprus is the head of state and the head of government of the Republic of Cyprusmarker. The office was created in 1960, after Cyprusmarker gained its independence from the United Kingdommarker. Currently, the President of Cyprusmarker is Dimitris Christofias.

After the 1974 coup d'état which installed Nikos Sampson, Turkeymarker invaded Northern Cyprus on 20 July 1974, and in 1983 created the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprusmarker, which is recognized only by Turkey itself. Consequently, the jurisdiction of the Republic of Cyprus does de facto not extend to the northern third of the island.
