FROM ATHENS TO ZIMBABWE: The evolution of presidential term limits in historical perspective

Presenter: Dr. Boniface Dulani

Term limits remain very popular across the globe, in Africa as well as Malawi. Despite their popularity, there is very little written about the philosophical foundations and historical origins of tenure limitations. In many instances, presidential term limits are wrongly attributed to the passage in of the 22nd Amendment of the United States Constitution that introduced a two-term limit rule on the US presidency in 1947.
