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.

(The unlikely possibility that a Vice President could succeed to terms of more than one President is not addressed.)Bolivia:A president may only be elected for a single non-renewable 5 year term.Ecuador:As of the 2008 Constitutional Change, A president may be elected to at most two - 4 year terms.2 terms for a total of 8 years ( each term is 4 years).
