Icon impeachment.png The President Impeachment is a type of a law that can be proposed by the members of Congress as the last resort if they want to "fire" current country President. Once an Impeachment has been proposed in Congress, another Impeachment proposal won't be possible for a period of 7 days, despite its result. If a President wants to resign his or her office, he must request Congress to impeach.
Icon law president impeachment.png The President impeachment can be proposed on Country administration page. When proposing the Impeachment it is not a bad idea to put a link to the debate area in which the reason for the impeachment can be found out. If accepted, the citizen that was president will be out of the office and the next candidate (by the number of votes) in the last elections is declared the new president of the country.
Only the person who is elected president will get the Country President achievement. In other words, after impeachment voting passed, the candidate taking elected president's place will not get the Country President achievement.

Notes
If the following candidate has not got the citizenship of the country where he was running for the presidency, the following candidate will be considered. In special cases (when all candidates are not eligible for receiving presidency), the country can even have no president.
Unlike most proposals, impeachment proposals require a super majority, or 66% of the votes to pass.
Between 4th (from 00:00) and 5th (until 23:59) proposing a “Presidential Impeachment” law is not possible anymore.
If impeachment law is started before elections check is over and it passes, the new President will be impeached.

Example

66% of the votes are needed to pass an impeachment.
20 eligible people voted. 66% of 20 is 13.2 - 14 votes are needed to pass the impeachment law.

Questions
  • If a congressman resigns, does that change the total? No. The only that matters is the number of votes.
  • If the total is changed to 19, and 66% is 12.54, is 12 or 13 needed to pass an impeachment? 13; always first full number above 66 % of the total number of votes
Remember
You need at least 66% out of TOTAL NUMBER OF VOTES (example: if 4 people vote, and 3 are in favor, the impeachment is voted as accepted).

FAQ

No one. The country will not have a president.
