The position of President of Australia was created on 1 January 2000, following the Republicans coming to power. The position is the head of State, which was previously occupied by the Governor-General. It coincides with the title of Prime Minister of Australia, the head of government. The presidency is won by one of the parties in the Presidential Upper house, who will go through to the election, which happens every four years, with the election occurring in that December, followed by the President receiving the title on the 13th of December and going through their four year terms.
