The President is the Head of State of the United Arab Emirates. Because the current ruler of Abu Dhabi customarily also holds the presidency of the UAE, the office is de facto hereditary. The President is also Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces and Chairman of the Supreme Council and Supreme Petroleum Council.

The current President is Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. Nahyan became President on 3 November 2004, following the death of his father, Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.
