The President of the Government of South Sudan is the head of the Government of South Sudan and the Commander-in-Chief of the Sudan Peoples' Liberation Army (SPLA).

The Government of Southern Sudan (GoSS) is a transitional semi-autonomous government that arose as a consequence of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) in 2005. This accord ended one of Africa's longest and deadliest conflicts. Under the auspices of the CPA, the Government of South Sudan was formed. It was originally headed by the founding leader of the liberation movement, Dr John Garang, who also became the first Vice President of the Republic of Sudan through the formation of a Government of National Unity.
