Is There A Minimum And Maximum Age Limit To Candidature To The Presidency?

225

QUESTION OF THE DAY

In the last issue the Constitution was quoted on the minimum and maximum age limit for those who seek the office of president before the amendment of the Constitution in 2017 which negated the maximum age limit to the presidency. The section now reads on age limit for presidential candidature:

“(1) A person shall be qualified for election as President if—

(b) A person shall be qualified for election as President if he or she has attained the minimum age of thirty years….”

 No upper age limit exists after the amendment in 2017.
