Magomedsalam Magomedaliyevich Magomedov (Russian: Магомедсалам Магомедалиевич Магомедов, b. June 1, 1964) is a Russian politician who served as the third President of Dagestan, a federal subject of the Russian Federation found in the North Caucasus region, from 2010 to 2013. His appointment by the President of Russia was approved by the parliament of Dagestan on February 10, 2010.[1] Magomedov is an ethnic Dargin. His father, Magomedali Magomedov, served as President of Dagestan between 1987 and 2006.[2] It is his stated ambition as president to consolidate and modernise the republic to counter the threat of Islamic extremism, in particular the attempts made to undermine and terrorise the republic by supporters of the so-called Caucasus Emirate.[3] His resignation was accepted by President Vladimir Putin on January 28, 2013.[4]

Magomedsalam Magomedov has an academic background and differs from his predecessors who were Soviet-era Communist Party leaders who adapted to changed circumstances. Prior to the presidency, Magomedsalam Magomedov was elected speaker of Dagestan’s parliament in 2006 for a period of one year.[5]
