Does the President have to be a member of Congress?

No. In a parlimentary system, the prime minister is a member of parliament, but our American constitution was set up so that there would be a separate branch of government called the executive branch for the president and his cabinet and other sub-departments. The other two branches are judicial and legislative. Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution sets down the formal requirements for the office of the President: must be 35 years of age or older, a natural-born citizen, and a resident of the United States for at least 14 years before taking office (not counting vacations). There are some informal qualifications that voters like a candidate to have. Some expect some kind of govermental experience but it does not have to be as a member of Congress.
