The President of Transnistria is the highest elected official of Transnistria, a small unrecognized country which declared independence from Moldova in 1990. The president of the republic is the country's head of state and is commander in chief. As per the Constitution of Transnistria, he also represents the country abroad.

The President of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic, as Transnistria is officially called, is elected by the citizens of the republic on the basis of universal, equal and direct suffrage by secret ballot for a term of five years. For the past three elections, Igor Smirnov won the majority of the votes. International observers disagree about the validity of vote results, with some calling the elections free and fair and others claiming the exact opposite.

The last Transnistria's presidential election was held December, 2006.
