Can a president serve more than 8 years?


A president can only be elected for two terms. However, he/she could serve more than 8 years if he was VP and the president died. So technically, false. Thanks for using AnswerParty!

A vice president (British English – government: vice-president; business: director) is an officer in government or business who is below a president (managing director) in rank. The name comes from the Latin vice meaning 'in place of'. In some countries, the vice president is called the deputy president. A common colloquial term for the office is vee-pee, deriving from a phonetic interpretation of the abbreviation VP.
