Give them too much time and presidents may "gain too much power"; give them too little time and presidents won't be able to fully implement their programs because it also takes time to establish one's rule and "fix" the mistakes of the predecessor/s. Right now our president is elected to a 5yr term (it used to be 7yrs). We don't have term limits but it's currently being proposed to have maximum of 2 consecutive presidential terms. Do you agree with term limits? What would be an ideal limit for a president to stay in office? I've read two interesting points about this. First, "a two-term limit suddenly grants presidents the freedom of having no accountability to the public because they don’t have to worry about re-election during the second term". Second, "It's better to get only one shot but longer than 5 years to eliminate the re-election campaign that begins the second a first term president is elected." Thoughts?
