(The Philippine Presidents)

Ang Pangulo ng Pilipinas ang pinakamataas na pinuno ng Republika ng Pilipinas.  Pinamumunuan ng pangulo ang Tagapagpaganap ng sangay ng pamahalaan, na kinabibilangan ng Gabinete, at siya rin ang Punong Komandanto o Commander-in-Chief ng Sandatahang Lakas ng Pilipinas.

Sang-ayon sa kasalukuyang Saligang-Batas (1987), ang pangulo ay nararapat na may gulang na 40 taon pataas, mamamayang Pilipino mula kapanganakan, at nakatira sa Pilipinas sampung taon bago ng halalan.  Tuwirang ihahalal ng mga Pilipino ang pangulo na mananalo kung siya ang may pinakamalaking bilang ng boto.  Magsisilbi ang pangulo ng isang termino sa loob ng anim na taon at hindi na makakatakbo muli para sa re-eleksyon, maliban kung siya ay naging pangulo sa pamamagitan ng konstitusyon succession at nagsilbi ng hindi hihigit sa apat na taon bilang pangulo.
