The President of the Republic of Yemen is the head of state of Yemen.

Under the Constitution of Yemen, the President is also the Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces and head of the executive branch of the Yemeni government.

The current President of Yemen is Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi, who took office on 27 February 2012. The legality of his claim to presidency is in question, as the end of his mandate was originally set for February 27, 2014.[1] His mandate was extended for another year.[2] However, he remained in power after the expiration of his mandate, until January 22, 2016, when he handed over his resignation.[3] He reaffirmed that he intended on resigning two weeks later.[4] After his resignation, the government was assumed by Supreme Revolutionary Committee. However, on February 21, 2016, Hadi presented himself as the president again, in Aden. His role is contested by Supreme Political Council's president, Saleh Ali al-Sammad.
