Template:Politics of Peru

Established in the Constitution of 1993, the President of the Republic is the Chief of the State and represents the republic in official international matters. The presidential term is five years; incumbents cannot be re-elected for a second consecutive term. The official name is Constitutional President of the Republic.

Durings its more than 180 years of independence, Peru has been ruled by the military leaders who fought for independence, the leaders of the War of the Pacific, representatives of the aristocracy, and democratically-elected leaders. Also, the history of the presidency has involved civil wars, coups and violence. More than once, several individuals claimed the right to be president at the same time.

Different titles have been used, such as "Protector of Peru" (used by San Martin), "Liberator of Peru" (used by Bolivar) and "Supreme Protector" (by Santa Cruz).

The following table contains a list of the individuals who have served as president of Peru.
