The President of Egypt is Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, who was elected on 8 June 2014. Prior to Abdel Fattah el-Sisi's election Adly Mansour was acting as the interim leader until the government drafted a new constitution and organized the next election.

Adly Mansour was sworn in as Egypt's interim leader after the previous President, Mohamed Morsi, was removed from the position by force in July 2013. Mansour was a judge and president of Egypt's Supreme Constitutional Court, and did not represent any of Egypt's political parties. Mansour did not plan to stand in future elections. Egypt also has a Prime Minister, who is currently Sherif Ismail.
