Parliament has the power to impeach the ________________.


ANSWER

President


SOLUTION

The President can be removed from office by a procedure known as impeachment.

Impeachment is nothing but the removal of a person from the office.

A president can be impeached in the case of violation of the constitution.

A 14-day notice should be given to the President.

The house in which impeachment is initiated should pass this resolution with a majority of two-thirds of the total membership.

If the second House also passes the resolution with a two-thirds majority of the total membership of the House, then the President stands impeached from that date.
