Under the French Third and the Fourth Republics, the "President of the Council" (of ministers) was the head of government, with the President of the Republic a largely symbolic figurehead.
In French legal terminology, the president of a court consisting of multiple judges is the foremost judge; he chairs the meeting of the court and directs the debates (and this thus addressed as "Mr President", Monsieur le Président, or appropriate feminine forms).
Though the president is to be chosen solely by a unanimous decision by the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, the entire body of the church votes to sustain the President in this calling.
