Both head of state and head of government, the modern President of Afghanistan is elected for a four-year term. The current President has been Ashraf Ghanie since 29th September 2014.

Hamid Karzai won the disputed 2009 Afghanistan presidential election, after Abdullah Abdullah refused to participate in a runoff.

Originally, there were three vice-presidents; now there are two. There has been much discussion of a "Chief Executive Officer" who would have some of the attributes of a head of government.
