The list of Presidents of the Legislative Assembly of the Azores consists of the chairpersons for the autonomous local legislature of the Azores, since the Carnation Revolution that installed the democratic Third Portuguese Republic. This list includes the leaders of the transitional regimes and those presidents elected after the institutionalization of the autonomy statute that provided archipelago with its laws and democratic rights.

On 21 July 1976, Álvaro Monjardino was elected by plenum of the Regional Assembly, the first President of the Azorean Assembly, nominated by the first President of the Azores (João Bosco Mota Amaral).
