The terms and conditions of an elected official vary from country to country.

Such things as the length of the term in years.

The number of times that official may be re-elected.

Salary and benefits.

When the elections take place

Staggered offices

All these things are dependant on the legislation of the country concerned.

For example a US senator is elected for a term of office of six years. There is no restriction on the number of times he or she may be re-elected.

Other rules apply to other elected posts.
