    According to the CoL, a Tri or Cabinet member may only hold the same office for two terms. I don't thik this rule is very usefull and it may lead to problems because next term at least 4 officials will have to leave office because of this rule (Vind2, Rihiter, Robboo and I). Their experience with the office will be lost, that's not a good thing.

    But it's also good in that we force the job open for people to do different work or let new people take a job.

    Well I have term limited out as SoW and as SoS. I am indiffferent onterm limits. I see teh point but also wouldnt mind staying on at either of those positions. I left in the middle of a war and right now I am in the middle of structuring longer term relations with Russia and Germany which is kinda fun actually.

    But I need a clarification. I was not elected SoS the first term and took office as a vacant position almost at midterm. I think I will ask our judiciary (George? any unoffical feelings on this.)

    I already asked the same thing, but haven't heard of it since. I was appointed as MoS in term 5 instead of being elected.

    I ruled right away. You can hold office for a third term, you just can't run or be elected. So you would have to not run and allow it to become vacant (no body runs or other means) and be appointed. And then you can't run the next term either. That's my basic unofficial rulling.

    Okay, thanks for the quick answer.
    I think this law isn't as clear as it should be, maybe someone should rewrite it sometime.
