The Scottish Presidential Election of 2025 was held on 27 May 2025 to elect the 1st President of Independent Scotland. Voting took place in all of Scotland, with a simple plurality vote system. The election ran alongside the first Scottish general election, also won by the SNP with Nicola Sturgeon as their leader.

Nicola Sturgeon won a landslide victory, gaining more votes for president than her party did for the general election, mostly due to less mainstream candidates running for the role. Labour's candidate, Kezia Dugdale came second with a significantly smaller share of the vote than Sturgeon.
