The President of the Federal Republic of Germany is the country's head of state. His official title in German is 'Bundespräsident' (“Federal President”). Germany has a parliamentary system of government and so the position of President is largely ceremonial. Nevertheless the President has some important "reserve powers" in case of political instability (such as those provided for by Article 81 of the Basic Law).
The President is elected by the Federal Convention, a body established solely for that purpose. Christian Wulff was elected Federal President in the 2010 presidential election. The first official residence of the President is the Bellevue Palace in Berlin. The President's second official residence is the Hammerschmidt Villa in Bonn.
