The Minister-President of Wallonia is the head of the Walloon government, the executive power of Wallonia, one of the three regions of Belgium.

He has his official residence, known as the Élysette, in Namur, along the Meuse River.

The Minister-President should not be confused with the Minister-President of the French Community of Belgium, which is currently led by Rudy Demotte, the preceding minister-president of Wallonia.
