Mandate term

Mandate term

There should be a limit on the PM's discretion to call an election driven by his party's interests. Why not go for legislation that sets a minimum fixed term for a government (say 4.5 years), obviously subject to exceptions like failing a vote of confidence etc.?


Agree with this idea. As soon as the prime minister is elected, parliament would open within a set time frame. 5 years down the line, election has to be called. Give or take 2-3 weeks. An early election is called only by a vote of no confidence on the government, when the budget estimates are not passed through.
