How long can a president serve for and how many terms?

In the usa, the president can serve up to two terms, each being 4 years. The president can only serve the second term if he/she is elected again.

How many terms can the us president serve?

The US President can serve a maximum two full terms. One term is four years. A president who finishes another president's term which has less than two years to go, can still serve two more full terms. Therefore, in theory, it is possible to serve for 10 years in this special case.

How many years can the President serve Why is there a limit to how many terms a person can be President?

The president can serve up to eight years, which is two terms. A term is four years. A limit has been set, so our government will not become a dictatorship.

How many years does a serve being president serve according to the constitution?

2 terms. 4 years a term.

How many terms of presidency?

FDR was elected to 4 terms. After he died during his fourth term, the Congress passed a law. The President of the USA can serve no more than 2 full terms as President (if he/she is Vice President to a President that dies in office, then they can serve the remaining term as President and serve an additional two terms in office). Therefore President Harry Truman could serve two full terms as President in addition to the term he finished up for FDR. (HST only ran for more term). LBJ could serve as two full terms plus the term he was Vice President for JFK. LBJ only served one full term as President. He did not run again in 1968.
