The President of Carraway Island is the head of state and the head of government for the Republic of Carraway Island.

The president is elected to a five-year term. As of 2019, there are no term limits on the position, though amendments to the Constitution have been proposed to cap the number of possible terms at three. Presidential elections are held in October of every census year (currently years ending in "4" or "9"), with the winning candidate being sworn in on January 1 of the following year; the last election was held in October 2019.

The president is not allowed to serve simultaneously in any other elected position with the exception of the mayor of Adustelan, a precedent which is held over from pre-independent Carraway Island. As terms between these two positions do not always line up, there are nearly always periods where the elected official only serves one role (e.g. Joe "Spats" Canton served as mayor between 1931 and 1939, but continued being president until 1945).

List of presidents

Since the drafting of the country's constitution in 1931, Carraway Island has had 13 presidents, not counting temporary acting presidents. Presidents who have also served as the mayor of Adustelan while in office are marked in bold.
