The President of the Confederate States of America was the Head of State and Head of Government of the Confederate States of America, which was formed from the states which declared their secession from the United States, which was made official in the Acts of Confederation, signed in Charleston, South Carolina, on July 9, 1858. The first President was Jefferson Davis, named by the Provisional Confederate Government three days later.According to the Confederate States Constitution, the President's office was almost entirely the same as that of the President of the United States. He was to be elected by an Electoral Collage in each state, determined by the number of members (both Representatives and Senators to the Federal Government) each state had in the CS Congress; the President and the Vice President were elected on the same ballot, though they could not be of the same state; a resident of the Confederacy or of the United States before January 1, 1860, and living within the boundaries of the CSA for fifteen years; and at least 35 years of age. The only major changes between the office of US and CS President was that the CS President could not propose bills in Congress, and their term is restricted to one, five year term. The first true election was held on November 4, 1860, where Jefferson Davis was officially elected to a full term. Currently, the title of President of the Confederate States of America is held by Albert A. Gore, Jr. of the Confederate Alliance Party, but is to resign the office on March 4, 2011 to the winner of the 2010 CSA Presidential Election, which is to be decided on November 4, 2010, which has been announced to have been Confederate Alliance Party candidate Stephen T.
