The President of the Hellenic Republic, colloquially referred to in English as the President of Greece, is the head of state of Greece. The President is elected by the Hellenic Parliament, and his role is mostly ceremonial. The office was formally established by the Constitution of Greece in 1975, but has an antecedent in the Second Hellenic Republic of 1924–1935 and the Republic declared by the Greek military junta in 1973–1974. The incumbent is Karolos Papoulias. (via Freebase)
