President of the Ukrainian People's Republic in exile (Ukrainian: ? ) was an official position of the Ukrainian government-in-exile after World War II. The post was basically transformed out of the position of chairman of Directorate of Ukraine.

History

On July 10, 1948 there was adopted "Provisional law about reorganization of the State Center of the Ukrainian People's Republic in exile" that was coordinated between various Ukrainian political organizations. Andriy Livytskyi who was a chairman of the Directorate of Ukraine was confirmed by the Ukrainian National Council as the President of the Ukrainian People's Republic in exile. From 1948 to 1992 there were four presidents of UNR in exile. On March 15, 1992 the extraordinary session of the Ukrainian National Council adopted a resolution "About handing over authority of the State Center of UNR in exile to the state power in Kiev and termination of work of the State Center of UNR in exile". The last president Mykola Plaviuk officially handed over his presidential powers to the newly elected President of Ukraine Leonid Kravchuk.

The president was to be elected or confirmed by the Ukrainian National Council. He had a right to participate in sessions of the Ukrainian National Council and its presidium, represent the State Center of UNR in exile at foreign relations, appointed a head of government and, on suggestion of which, members of the government. In exceptional cases the President could dissolve the Ukrainian National Council on proposition of the government. The government of UNR was responsible and accountable to both the President as well as the council. All presidents except for the last one held the title for the rest of their lives.

The UNR in exile also had a position of a vice-president.
