The President of Yingok, officially the President of the Fourth Republic of Yingok (Yinese: 燕國總統, Jinping: jin3 gwok3 zung2 tung2) is the head of state and head of government of Yingok, and the commander-in-chief of the Yinese Defence Force. The President is elected every six years by popular vote, and is eligible for a maximum of three terms in office. The president is responsible for enforcing national policies and laws, appointing government officials such as ministers, judges, and civil servants. The president also represents the country in international affairs. The President resides in the Jibun Palace in Dongsing, and is advised by his cabinet of ministers.

The power of the presidency has fluctuated substantially since the first president, Ho Siyat, in 1896. In recent years, allegations of corruption and misuse of power have plagued presidents and their respective administration. This has led to public discontent and protests, with citizens calling for greater transparency and accountability in government. There have been several high-profile corruption cases involving the President and their close associates, leading to calls for investigations and reforms. This had led to the resignation, impeachment and occasionally imprisonment of former Yinese presidents including TBD.

The current president is Yeung Kapkaa who succeeded Zeng Ying in 2022 who served the remaining months of X's terms following his resignation after several major scandals involving corruption and embezzlement came to light. In total, there have been 16 presidents including the incumbent, with 7 of them belonging to the Fourth Republic.
