Mahamadou Issoufou is the President of Niger. He won a presidential run-off election against Seyni Oumarou on 2011 March 12 by 57.95% to 42.05%. Issoufou was officially sworn in on 2011 April 7.

Issoufou was previously the Prime Minister of Niger from 1993 April 17 to 1994 September 28, when he resigned. He ran for President in 1996, placing fourth, and again in 1999 and 2004, both times placing second to Mamdou Tandja.

As Tandja's second term was coming to an end, a constitutional amendment allowing the president to serve more than 2 terms was proposed, and passed in a heavily boycotted national referendum. This led to a military coup d'état on 2010 February 18, where Mamadou Tandja was deposed. Leadership of the country was turned over to Salou Djibo, Chairman of the Supreme Council for the Restoration of Democracy of Niger. Issoufou would finally become President after winning the elections held in 2011.
