Head of government of the U.S. commonwealth of Puerto RicoThe Governor of Puerto Rico (Spanish: Gobernador de Puerto Rico) is the highest executive authority of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, its head of state, head of government, and commander-in-chief of the Puerto Rico National Guard. [3] As part of the Spanish Empire, the Spanish monarchy was in charge of appointing the governor of Puerto Rico. Pursuant to section Three, Article IV of the Constitution of Puerto Rico, the governor must be a citizen of the United States, a resident of Puerto Rico for five consecutive years prior and at least 35 years old at the time of the election. Candidates typically represent a political party, with every elected governor to date (as of 2019 ) having been a member of the New Progressive Party of Puerto Rico or the Popular Democratic Party of Puerto Rico. Despite not having been confirmed by the Senate of Puerto Rico, Pierluisi was sworn in as governor, which prompted a legal challenge.
