Term Limits

Term Limits

Put a stop to career politicians. Ministers should have a stipulated term limit of a maximum two administrative terms. This will help insulate Ministers from lobbyists and special interest groups, and the urge to please only for the purposes of re-election. It also serves to give a chance to new ideas and new faces in politics.

Points

This is one of the core principles of the Movimento Cinque Stelle party in Italy.

This idea should also be implemented or extended to local councils. I happen to be from Zurrieq and unfortunately we are stuck with a mayor who in my humble opinion is not fit for purpose. So, setting a limit of maximum two terms would increase the possibility of having different leaderships.
