The President of the UCAS is the head of state of the United Canadian and American States. He is also the chief executive of the federal government and the commander-in-chief of the armed forces.
The office is based on the President of the United States. The Presidential Election is held every four years on the Tuesday following the first Monday of November. The President is sworn into office on Inauguration Day, the following January 20. If January 20 falls on a Sunday, then the inauguration is held on January 21. However, the UCAS Constitution replaced the Electoral College by a direct election by popular votes. The system provides for no run-off voting, and so the winner only need receive the most votes of the individual candidates, not a majority of all votes cast. Some historians refer to UCAS President's Order numbered for both UCAS and US. For instance, President Alan Adams was the fourth President of the UCAS and fiftieth President of the US.
Like the President of the United States, The President's official residence and workplace is the White House in Washington, FDC. Camp David in Maryland is the official weekend and vacation residence (although it is sometimes used for less formal meetings with foreign personalities, and many presidents prefer their private houses for real vacation).
