Federal President

First man in the state

The Federal President is the first man in the state. So far there have only been men in this position in Germany. Perhaps a woman will hold this office one day. No law speaks against it.

Election by the Federal Assembly

The Federal President is elected by the Federal Assembly for a five-year term, and the Federal Assembly meets for this purpose only. Any German who is at least 40 years old can be elected President.

Duties of the Federal President
The Federal President can often be seen on television when he receives other heads of state or makes state visits himself. This is one of his most important tasks: representing Germany to other countries and concluding contracts with other countries. Laws do not apply without his signature. The work of the Federal President also includes the appointment of the Federal Chancellor and the ministers. The Federal President has a special right: he can pardon prisoners.
