History of office

Since 1994, the State Council of the Republic of Dagestan was the highest executive body in the region, which was elected by the Constitutional Assembly and which included representatives of 14 "main" Dagestani ethnic groups. Magomedali Magomedov was elected chairman of the State Council three times, in 1994, 1998 and 2002.

In 2003, a new Constitution of Dagestan was adopted, in which the post of President was introduced. The first direct presidential elections were to take place in 2006, after the end of Magomedov's third term. At the same time the State Council of Dagestan should have been disestablished. However, in December 2004, at the initiative of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin, the elections of regional leaders were replaced with appointment by the legislative bodies on the proposal of the President of Russia.

In July 2011, the People's Assembly of Dagestan supported amendments to the constitution, changing the title of the highest office from President to Head of the Republic. The law came into force on January 1, 2014.

In May 2012, at the initiative of outgoing Russian president Dmitry Medvedev, a federal law was adopted returning the direct elections of heads of regions, which came into force on June 1. In June 2012, the People's Assembly of Dagestan adopted a law “On elections of the President of Dagestan”, according to which the president is elected by direct popular vote, but self-nominated candidates cannot take part in elections, and party candidates must overcome a 10% municipal threshold.

On 23 January 2013, the early resignation of the President Magomedsalam Magomedov took place. Five days later Vladimir Putin appointed Ramazan Abdulatipov as acting president of Dagestan, who was previously speaker of Russia's upper house of parliament in early 90s.

On April 1, Abdulatipov said that Dagestan may cancel direct presidential elections. In his opinion, the election will most likely held within the parliament. At the same time, Abdulatipov stated that he himself supports holding direct elections and is ready to run. On April 18, the People's Assembly in favor of indirect elections. Thus, Dagestan became the first Russian region to cancel direct election of its leader. Then the deputies of the People's Assembly decided that to vote on candidates for the presidency, they will gather at an extraordinary session on the regional election day (September 8). Abdulatipov was supported by 86 from 88 members of the Assembly.

On 3 October 2017, Russian president Vladimir Putin appointed Vladimir Vasilyev as the interim head of the Republic of Dagestan. On 9 September 2018 Vasilyev was elected as the head of Dagestan by the People's Assembly. Vasilyev had launched a wide anti-corruption campaign in the region. From 28 May 2018 until his retirement, he was the oldest from the federal subjects' leaders.

In October 2020 Vasilyev was replaced with Sergey Melikov, former Presidential Envoy in North Caucasus.
