The president of Soravia, officially and formally known as the president of the Soravian Republic is the highest political office within the political framework of Soravia. The president is elected in an election held every five years, and is the head of state and head of government of Soravia.

The office was established officially in 1861 with the ratification of the Constitution of Soravia following the victory of the Seven Province Union in the First Soravian Civil War. The presidency was initially a term used for a non-monarchical or non-noble head-of-state, with the presidency exercising absolute authority with little electoral involvement. Eduard Olsov was the inaugural holder of the presidency, ruling for 43 years until his assassination. The presidency continued as a de facto dictatorship until the Second Soravian Civil War broke out in the 1980s, with the constitution being revised in 1983 to create the legislative Voynaskul and Federal Council within the Federal Assembly, all of which are elected, and introducing term limits on presidents. Despite these developments, the presidency of Soravia is often criticised for its totalitarianism and lack of democracy.

The president is accompanied by the prime minister of Soravia, who handles many governmental duties in place of the president and becomes interim president in the case of the incumbent president's resignation, disappearance or death. Presidential powers include actions from appointing judicial staff to delegating federal advisories to represent the provinces of Soravia in their personal cabinet.
