The President of Duwamish is the head of state and head of government of the Republic of Duwamish. The president leads the executive branch of the federal government and is the commander-in-chief of the Duwamish armed forces.
Article I of the Duwamish Constitution vests the executive power of Duwamish in the president and charges him/her with the execution of federal law, alongside the responsibility of appointing federal executive, diplomatic, regulatory, and judicial officers, and concluding treaties with foreign powers, with the advice and consent of the Senate. The president is further empowered to grant federal pardons and reprieves, and to convene and adjourn the Senate under extraordinary circumstances. Since the founding of Duwamish, the power of the president and the federal government has remained the same, despite modern presidents dictating legislative agendas of his political parties and domestic policy of Duwamish.
The president is directly elected by popular vote to a one-year term, and is one of only three nationally elected federal officers, the others being the Vice President and Secretary of State. The First Amendment, adopted in 1966, prohibits anyone from being elected to the presidency for a sixth full term. In all, thireteen individuals have served 46 one-year terms. On April 2, 2006, Bruce Martin was sworn-in after serving as acting president for five months and remains the nineteenth and current president.
