This page lists the Presidents of Honduras.

Colonial Honduras declared its independence from Spain on 15 September 1821.

Presidents of Honduras within the Federal Republic of Central America (1821-1839)[edit]

On 1 July 1823 Honduras, along with Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Costa Rica, declared its independence from Mexico to form the short lived Federal Republic of Central America, also known as United Provinces of Central America. Honduras remained as a member state until it decided to separate in 1838. The entire union dissolved in civil war between 5 November 1838, when Nicaragua separated from the federation, and about 1840.

Presidents of the Independent Republic of Honduras (1839-present)[edit]

Honduras declared itself independent on 15 November 1838, and a constitution was formally adopted in January 1839. After a period of instability, conservative General Francisco Ferrera became the first elected president of the country for a two-year term, but then extended his de facto control of the nation for the next five years.

Most presidents after 1900 represent one of the two dominant political parties, the Liberal Party of Honduras (PLH) and the National Party of Honduras (PNH).

The most recent election was held 29 November 2009, with Porfirio Lobo Sosa elected president, taking office on 27 January 2010.
