Who by law determine the removal of either the president of vice president during their term in office?
Prior to 1967, anytime a president died in office his vice president took the office of president and did not have a vice president for the remainder of that term. Until the ratification of the 25th Amendment to the Constitution, there was no requirement to replace a vice president. For example, Chester Arthur served out the rest of President Garfield's term without a vice president. There have been many occasions in which a President did…
No person who is not elligible to be President can become Vice-President. No person may be elected more than twice to the office of President. There is disagreement as to whether this prevents a former President from serving as a Vice-President, since he would not have been elected to the office of President should he succeed to that office due to the death or disability of the President. But he clearly would be prevented from…
How long does a Vice President remain in office If the President of the US is unable to perform his duties?
The Vice President could become Acting President in the event of Presidential disability, and there is no codified term. A new Vice President would not be nominated. Should the Vice President succeed to the Presidency, then he would serve out the remainder of that President's term, and a new Vice President would ordinarily be nominated to fill the Vice President's unexpired term.
The same as the President's. If the current President dies, the Vice President completes his term as the President. A Vice President-elect normally assumes office shortly before the new President (noon on January 20 following the election). Under the 25th Amendment, a new vice president is nominated and confirmed whenever the office is vacant, assuming that it is not a very short period before a new President and Vice President are to be inaugurated.
No. If the President runs for a second term of office, he may name a different person as running mate provided the nomination convention approves, but he can not fire an elected vice president. A Vice-President can only be removed from office involuntarily by impeachment in the House of Representatives and conviction by the US Senate.
Would the vice president become president for the remainder of the term if the current president was impeached?
If the President can not complete his term, the vice-president becomes President. If the vice-president can not complete his term, the president nominates a new vice-president who must be confirmed by both houses of Congress in order to take office. If two were both suddenly killed, the Speaker of the House would become President.
Yes, as long as the one term did not exceed the term of office limit as set forth by the 25th Amendment. Yes if he has served only one term If he has served two terms, then probably not, as he is ineligible to a further term as President, and the 12th Amendment states that "no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States".
No. A sitting President or Vice-President can only be removed from office involuntarily through the impeachment process, which is conducted by the House of Representatives, then tried in the Senate. A President may choose a different running mate if he (or she) is running for a second term of office, however.
