The President of the Republic of Moldova as the Head of the State represents the State and is the guarantor of national sovereignty, independence, of the unity and territorial integrity of the nation. In this context the notion of “the Head of the State” means the person called to represent the state at the top level representing the entire nation and its territory (Article 77 of the Constitution).

Any citizen of the Republic of Moldova over 40 years of age with the right to vote that has been living in the country for at least 10 years and speaks the State language can run for the office of President of the Republic of Moldova (Article 78 paragraph (2) of the Constitution).

The President of the Republic of Moldova takes office on the oath-taking day and his term has a duration of 4 years. The Head of the State exercises his mandate until the next President is sworn in. By organic law the mandate of the President of the Republic of Moldova may be prolonged in the event of war or catastrophe. However the office of the President of the Republic of Moldova may be held by the same person for no more than two consecutive terms (Article 80 of the Constitution).
