No more than 8 years, I think. I know it's no more than 2 terms.
Elected for 4, maximum term is 8 upon reelection.
Actually it would be unlimited if he is serving out another president's term multiple times. The limit is on the number of times one is eligible for election<br />
"No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. "
it can be 12 if you are the vice president and the president dies shortly after taking office and you are elected 2 times
Did not one of our presidents extend his term due to war...Roosevelt?
Roosevelt served four terms. He was the reason term limits for president were set to two.
What happens if a vice president becomes president due to the original president resigning, impeachment, or death/health issues? Is that considered a term, and the VP turned President can only serve one more term?
Yes, the VP resumes the Presidents role until the term is finished. In order for the VP to serve a second term, he will have to be re-elected.
Thanks Tony. So lets say I am VP, and the President steps down after three years. I instantly become president for 1 year. Then the next election comes along, I win, so I get 4 more years. I just totaled 5 years, but it did span across 2 terms. Is that it?
