The Minister-President of the Brussels Capital-Region (French: Région de Bruxelles-Capitale, Dutch: Brussels Hoofdstedelijk Gewest) is the person leading the Government of the Brussels-Capital Region.[1][2] The post is appointed for 5 years along with 4 ministers and 3 "state" secretaries. While being the leader of the Government, the Minister-President also is the president of the College of the Common Community Commission of Brussels.

The Minister-President of the Brussels-Capital Region should neither be confused with the Governor of Brussels-Capital nor with the mayor of the City of Brussels, which is one of the 19 municipalities of Brussels.
