The Silofaisan presidential election of 2020 will be the first Silofaisan general election for the post of President held under the terms of the Constitution, occurring on the second Saturday of July, i.e. July 11, 2020. The incoming President will be elected directly by all citizens "at home and abroad" using a two-round system, and will take office on September 20 of the same year. It will also coincide with the elections to the Chamber of Delegates.

If no President is elected, or if the President-elect dies before assuming office, then the Speaker of the Chamber of Delegates will serve as Acting President until a successor is chosen subsequently at a special election.

Incumbent President Horatio Eden, who was elected at the Ratification Convention, will be eligible for re-election in 2020, and has confirmed publicly his intention to run.

The next general election of the presidency following this one will occur in 2022.
