The president is elected by parliament. The Assembly of the Republic is permitted to nominate 1 candidate per party in parliament. The Assembly then vote on each candidate and whichever candidate receives the most votes is then sworn in as president.

If, however, the outgoing president dismisses parliament before a new president is elected then a special election is held where the population elects the president by direct election from a few, party nominated, candidates.
