The President of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina represents the Federation and is a head of the federal executive power.[2] Term of the Federal President is 4 years. The post was established in March 1994.

Election of the Federal President consists of several activities. In electing the President and two Vicepresidents of the Federation, at least one third of the delegates of the respective Bosniak, Croat or Serb caucuses in the House of Peoples may nominate the President and two Vice presidents of the Federation. After that, House of Representatives needs to approve President and Vice Presidents, and after that House of Peoples decides to confirm the decision of House of Representatives by majority of votes of all three caucuses.[2]

The president can be dismissed from office after Federal Constitutional Court approves request from the Parliament of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Before the request was sent, two-thirds of Parliament need to vote for it.[2]
