The President of Zambia is the head of state and the head of government of Zambia. The office was first held by Kenneth Kaunda following independence in 1964. Since 1991, when Kaunda left the Presidency, the office has been held by five others: Frederick Chiluba, Levy Mwanawasa, Rupiah Banda, Michael Sata, and current President Edgar Lungu. In addition, Acting President Guy Scott served in an interim capacity after the death of President Michael Sata.

Since 31 August 1991 the President is also the head of government, as the position of Prime Minister was abolished in the last months of Kaunda's presidential term.

The President is elected for a term of five years. Since 1991, the officeholder has been restricted to two consecutive terms.
