The chairman of the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina (Bosnian/Croatian: Predsjedavajući Vijeća ministara Bosne i Hercegovine, Serbian: Предсједавајући Савјета министара Босне и Херцеговине) is the head of the government of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The chairman of the Council of Ministers is nominated by the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and appointed by the House of Representatives of Bosnia and Herzegovina. As head of the government, the chairman of the Council of Ministers has no authority for appointing ministers, and his role is that of a coordinator. Ministers are appointed in his or her stead by the majority-parties according to ethnic and entity representation rules, so that a deputy minister must not be of same ethnicity as the respective minister.[2]

Zoran Tegeltija is the 10th and current chairman of the Council of Ministers. He took office on 23 December 2019, following the 2018 general election.[3]
