Best World Leaders

The Top Ten

1 Narendra Modi Narendra Damodardas Modi is the 15th and current Prime Minister of India, in office since 26 May 2014. A leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party, Modi was the Chief Minister of Gujarat from 2001 to 2014 and is the Member of Parliament from Varanasi.

Modi is the world's best leader whose influence in the masses is immense. Wherever he go for speech in india, 1-2 million people comes to watch and listen him. Due to his influence in the masses or his exceptional oratory skills I choose him as the world's best leader.

A man who connects with the masses. But more than that, people love him because of his bold decisions and his vision for the modern India. He truly is modest, fierce and the most honest leader in many years for India.

He is very very honest, familiar and powerful leader.
He loves all indian and other countries people.
We are proud to be an Indian.
We all indian love MODIJI.

Great Leader, one of the best if not the best leader. We Love Modi.

2 Mustafa Kemal Ataturk

Turkey is a Muslim country I like Muslim countries from Pakistan

I don't know about much. but I listen he is a great leader of turkey

Of course he! He has to be in #1st!

The ingenuity of Ataturk has been endorsed even by other imperial world leaders whose countries had had the technological upper hand. Ataturk not only successfully mobilized a country whose people have lost hope, but also he used his frighteningly intelligent military strategies to overcome and win an independence war on four fronts. He was generous, philanthropist and nation builder and revolutionary.

3 Rodrigo Roa Duterte

Scumbag of a President. I would consider his supporters as 'Dutertards' because he is clearly acting like Kim Jong Un. He is curbing Freedom of Expression after what happened to Maria Ressa when he was arrested for supposed hit pieces in her Rappler News Outlet. This man is just worse than Estrada and Marcos. He is a bad man with a sick mind. At age 16, he started killing criminals which made it seem he was a horrible teenager. But now at age 73, he is trying to make the country run like the Marcos Legacy. This man kills people who take drugs and dumps their bodies on the water. His attitude is horrible and the display of arrogance shows he is Ferdinand Marcos. Careless old geezer. He favors Chinese interests which will make the Philippines turned into a province of China. He is a horrible man. Filipinos who support this rancid dictator aren't aware he is a cold-blooded killer.

A president who listens to the poorest. A president who has the biggest heart to the people and to the next generation. He thinks what is good in the future. He is strong leader and a loving father.

He stands up for all Filipinos especially the marginalized and the Overseas Filipino Workers. He has introduced many reforms and campaigns against corruption and drugs.

His heart belongs to the Philippines and the Filipinos! I have never been so proud of having a president whom you can compare to your own father.

4 Barack Obama Barack Hussein Obama II served as the 44th president of the United States of America. He was elected in 2008 after serving in the Senate from 2005-08, beating John McCain and becoming the first African-American to be elected President of the United States. He was elected again in 2012, beating Mitt ...read more.

He was such a blessed interlude between the idiocy and criminality of the Bush administration and the absolute schizophrenic mood swing chaos that has been Trump so far. "No Drama Obama" may have been low-key, but he served this country with intelligence, decency, dignity, wit, and no little diplomatic skill. He represented our nation so well in the world that he was consistently voted the most powerful world leader on lists in which Trump could not buy inclusion. His elegance, sense of propriety, knowledge of Constitutional law, and gift for communication are sorely missed.

He is one of the best world leaders he boomed the economy, reformed torture, saved the auto industry, beat Osama up, saved the economy from George W Bush, and insured millions of people. - HugoS

Just as bad as Donald trump does everything bad abroad that Donald does but he is praised and overrated for some reason

He was diplomatic, measured, intelligent and articulate with compassion and a heart. Who could have foreseen that his successor would be such an incompetent, intellectually bereft, thins skinned, moronic infant!

5 Mahatma Gandhi Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was the preeminent leader of the Indian independence movement in British-ruled India.

Probably the greatest leader ever who lived on mother earth. He had great acceptance between the people and people would lay down against the britishers on his say, they would burn their western clothes, join him on the non co operation movement and march with him for miles and miles in 'Dandi March' to oppose to taxes on Salt.

No one equal to him

He is the best no1

6 Winston Churchill Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill was a British statesman who was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. Churchill was also an officer in the British Army, a historian, and a writer.
7 Napoleon Bonaparte Napoléon Bonaparte was a French military and political leader who rose to prominence during the French Revolution and led several successful campaigns during the Revolutionary Wars.
8 Vladimir Putin Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin has been the President of Russia since 7 May 2012, succeeding Dmitry Medvedev. He was also President from 2000-2008.

Maybe he made mistakes, but I am really sure he is the only one who knows how to lead the country in our time.

Best world leader? Just because he said " no " to the US doesn't mean that he is the best. He is known to be a corrupt ( like all politicians by the way ) person.

He is a good choice to vote, I mean look at the guy he is just so good.

He is the best because he can outsmart dumb Obama and he's cool because he likes trump

9 George Washington George Washington was the first President of the United States, the Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States.

Guys this man is the foundation of the most OP country right now, USA. He defeated the British when he was outnumbered. He is one of the best strategists in the world

Dude he's a legend

10 Alexander the Great Alexander III of Macedon, commonly known as Alexander the Great, was a King of the Ancient Greek kingdom of Macedon and a member of the Argead dynasty.

The Contenders

11 Angela Merkel Angela Dorothea Merkel is a German politician and the Chancellor of Germany since 2005. She is also the leader of the Christian Democratic Union.

Brave, decent, cool. A true leader among EU political leaders. Has the rare political courage not to howl with the wolves, but to state what she believes to be right and decent. Even if that may threaten her popularity.
Agree or disagree with her. That courage is rare enough in politics to deserve our utmost respect. Even of those who disagree with her policies.

by the way: strange that Trump is voted higher than Merkel, while no one abroad takes Trump more seriously than they would take a drunk with a broken glass bottle. Why not vote for Erdohan if you voted for Trump. At least Erdohan gets things done (the wrong things and the wrong way, but still).

Calculated and Rational. As German as it gets.

12 John F. Kennedy John Fitzgerald Kennedy (May 29th, 1917-November 22, 1963) commonly referred to by his initials JFK, was an American politician who served as the 35th President of the United States from January 1961 until his assassination.

COMPASSION AND CARING TOWARD THE POOR THROUGH DOMESTIC POLICIES, CIVIL RIGHTS FOR THE AFRICIAN AMERICANS WERE IMPLEMENTED DURING HIS PRESIDENCY. PRESIDENT KENNEDY DISPLAYED INCREDIBLE COURAGE, STRENGTH OF CHARACTER AND INTELLIGENCE DURING HIS RELATIONS WITH RUSSIA. DESPITE HIS WEALTH AND SOCIAL POSITION, HE WENT INTO THE COAL MINE, SHOOK THE HANDS OF THE MINERS AND DID NOT DISPLAY AN ATTITUDE OF SNOBBERY.

He was a real man of the people. Mang other leaders are politicians wearing masks.

16 Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis.

Abraham Lincoln was a great man he thought slavery was wrong and went to war against the confederates in the end the union won but five days later he gave his life for America, he would never lie to anyone and gave great speeches.

17 Andrew Jackson Andrew Jackson was an American statesman who served as the seventh President of the United States from 1829 to 1837 .

He was the country's first black chief executive, and the first elected in a fully representative democratic election.

As a Filipino, he was 5x much better than our Satanic Leader: Duterte he should have been in the Top 5 because modern day Filipinos desire to have great leaders like him that my country PHILIPPINES will never have even in the next 100 years!

One of the best

He's dead, absolutely no power from the grave

He, alongside FW de Klerk, and other great leaders ended a devastating division between the races of South Africa. We, as South Africans, owe that warm, fuzzy feeling of pride, when we hear the words "rainbow nation", all to him. A leader that changed South Africa, but influenced the entire world. We owe all this to a great man. Mr R. Mandela.

Greatest president in USA history, Pride of the world the USA people are lucky they have a president who puts The country first

Immature, narcissistic, idiotic, incompetent, racist, sexist, disloyal, lying, manipulative, corrupt... and with the most brainless people of all time as his followers. Shame of you! This will be remembered in history books as America's most embarassing moment and as a complete joke.

He might not have the usual style, but he has the fearless substance needed to lead, and the street intelligence to fight dirty against corruption. A new kind of leader, a rebel against an archaic system of governing...future leaders will copy his direct style after his gone.

What a legend

23 Alberto Fujimori
24 Calvin Coolidge John Calvin Coolidge Jr. was an American politician and the 30th President of the United States. A Republican lawyer from New England, born in Vermont, Coolidge worked his way up the ladder of Massachusetts state politics, eventually becoming governor.

Good at what he did, what he did was not good

He was a terrible person but a great leader, he managed to take a whole continent.

In terms of military strategy, he was a great leader--he seized a bunch of territories. As a leader in economic and foreign affairs, he was absolutely despicable. Germany was a mess because it invested a huge amount of resources towards the Third Reich, and was--irrefutably--an awful person.

He's not bad at being a leader. He's just bad leading people into doing the right thing.

33 Ian Smith
34 Joko Widodo

This man rebuilt Indonesia and is steadily rescuing our nation from the massively infrastructurally imbalanced, far-right wing New Order and is bringing development and education to all corners of the Archipelago, not just Jakarta like Suharto did. If this continues and he is re-elected, Indonesia will be the world power that Suharto ensured it would not be. - TopTennsssssssaaaaaah

Humble but yet genius to lead the country for better world

Holding the post of the General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, he was effectively the dictator of the state.

40 Xi Jinping Xi Jinping is a Chinese politician currently serving as General Secretary of the Communist Party of China, President of the People's Republic of China, and Chairman of the Central Military Commission.

Modern China, Infrastructure, Anti corruption, silk road, military advancement, space race, world largest economy...etc. He is leading China to become the world most powerful country.

He is the best leader mainland China ever had. He knows how to deal with the economy, how to make democracy and how to communicate with other nations. He is way better than any other leader China ever had.
His anti-corruption campaign is the sign of real democracy. He is transforming China from a country that only had assembly lines to a nation that knows how to innovate. He is great at dealing with international affairs. He maintains a good relationship with Russia, as well as the United States and the United Kingdom. He had changed the mainland China-Taiwan relationship into a new landscape by meeting with the Taiwanese leader.
He also has a good wife who is both beautiful and talented. His wife made a good national image for China.
He is and will always be a great leader. Maybe some decades later, Chinese would be thanking him for what he had changed.

He is changing China

And created his empire all over cultured societies. that time, human hadnt discovered central africa, north and south america, australia. if had, maybe today world is Mongolians.

45 Hillary Clinton Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton is an American politician who was a Democratic presidential candidate in the 2008 and 2016 elections.

Best person on earth! Genius! Experienced and smart, she won the popular vote election. This qualified lady should be President-elect rather than a buffoon -- Donald Trump. She should be the one to better the legacy of Barack Obama, one of our great nations best presidents.

Believe me, while our situation would be much better with her than with Trump, it still wouldn't be all sunshine and roses. We should have listened to Bernie. - GrimmShady
