Term of office
A term of office is the length of time a person serves in a particular elected office. In many jurisdictions there is a defined limit on how long terms of office may be before the officeholder must be subject to re-election; some jurisdictions exercise term limits, setting a maximum number of terms an individual may hold in a particular office. Being the origin of the Westminster system, aspects of the United Kingdom's system of government are replicated in many other countries; the monarch serves as head of state until his or her abdication. In the United Kingdom Members of Parliament in the House of Commons are elected for the duration of the parliament. Following dissolution of the Parliament, a general election is held which consists of simultaneous elections for all seats. For most MPs this means that their terms of office are identical to the duration of the Parliament, though an individual's term may be cut short by death or resignation. An MP elected in a by-election mid-way through a Parliament, regardless of how long they have occupied the seat, is not exempt from facing re-election at the next general election.
The Septennial Act 1715 provided. Prior to the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011 parliaments had no minimum duration. Parliaments could be dissolved early by the monarch at the Prime Minister's request. Early dissolutions occurred when the make-up of Parliament made forming government impossible, or, more when the incumbent government reasoned an early general election would improve their re-election chances; the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011 mandated. Early dissolution is still possible, but under much more limited circumstances; because the government and Prime Minister are indirectly elected through the Commons, the terms of Parliaments and MPs do not directly apply to offices of government, though in practice these are affected by changes in Parliament. While speaking, a Prime Minister whose incumbency spans multiple Parliaments only serves one, term of office, some writers may refer to the different Parliaments as separate terms. Hereditary peers and life peers retain membership of the House of Lords for life, though members can resign or be expelled.
Lords Spiritual hold membership of the House of Lords until the end of their time as bishops, though a senior bishop may be made a life peer upon the end of their bishopric. The devolved administrations in Scotland and Northern Ireland are variations on the system of government used at Westminster; the office of the leader of the devolved administrations has no numeric term limit imposed upon it. However, in the case of the Scottish Government and the Welsh Assembly Government there are fixed terms for which the legislatures can sit; this is imposed at four years. Elections may be held before this time but only if no administration can be formed, which has not happened yet. Offices of local government other regional elected officials follow similar rules to the national offices discussed above, with persons elected to fixed terms of a few years. In the United States, the president of the United States is elected indirectly through the United States Electoral College to a four-year term, with a term limit of two terms or a maximum of ten years if the president acted as president for two years or less in a term where another was elected as president, imposed by the Twenty-second Amendment to the United States Constitution, ratified in 1951.
The Vice President serves four-year terms. U. S. Representatives serve two-year terms. U. S. Senators serve six-year terms. Federal judges have different terms in office. Article I judges. However, the majority of the federal judiciary, Article III judges, serve for life; the terms of office for officials in state governments varies according to the provisions of state constitutions and state law. The term for state governors is four years in all states but New Hampshire; the National Conference of State Legislatures reported in January 2007 that among state legislatures: 44 states had terms of office for the lower house of the state legislature at two years. Five had terms of office at four years. 37 states had terms of office for the upper house of the state legislature at four years. Twelve had terms of office at two years. Among territories of the United States: In the American Samoa Fono, members of the House serve two-year terms while members of the Senate serve six-year terms. Members of both chambers of the Legislative Assembly of Puerto Rico have four-year terms.
Members of both chambers of the Northern Mariana Islands Commonwealth Legislature have two-year terms. The Legislature of Guam and Legislature of the
1982 invasion of the Falkland Islands
On 2 April 1982, Argentine forces launched the invasion of the Falkland Islands, beginning the Falklands War. The Argentines mounted amphibious landings, the invasion ended with the surrender of Government House. Governor Rex Hunt was informed by the British Government of a possible Argentine invasion on 1 April 1982. At 3:30 pm that day he received a telegram from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office stating: We have reliable evidence that an Argentine task force could be assembling off Stanley at dawn tomorrow. You will wish to make your dispositions accordingly; the Governor summoned the two senior Royal Marine officers of Naval Party 8901 to Government House in Stanley to discuss the options for defending the Falklands. He said during the meeting: "Sounds like the buggers mean it". Major Mike Norman was given overall command of the Marines due to his seniority, while Major Gary Noott became the military advisor to Governor Hunt; the total strength was 68 Marines and 11 sailors from the Antarctic patrol ship Endurance’s survey team, commanded by RN Lieutenant Chris Todhunter.
That number was greater than would have been available because the garrison was in the process of changing over – both the replacements and the troops preparing to leave were in the Falklands at the time of the invasion. This was decreased to 57 when 22 Royal Marines embarked aboard HMS Endurance to join the 13-man British Antarctic Survey under base commander Steve Martin to observe Argentine soldiers based at South Georgia; the Royal Navy and author Russell Phillips state. Their numbers were reinforced by at least 25 Falkland Islands Defence Force members. Graham Bound, an islander who lived through the Argentine occupation, reports in his book Falkland Islanders At War that the higher figure of 40 members of the FIDF reported for duty at their drill hall, their commanding officer, Major Phil Summers, tasked the volunteer militiamen with guarding such key points as the telephone exchange, the radio station and the power station. Skipper Jack Sollis, on board the civilian coastal ship Forrest, operated his boat as an improvised radar screen station off Stanley.
Four other civilians, former Royal Marines Jim Fairfield and Anthony Davies, a Canadian citizen, Bill Curtiss and Rex Hunt's chauffeur, Don Bonner offered their services to the governor. Rex Hunt himself was armed with a Browning 9 mm pistol. Prior to the main Argentine landings, nine of the British sailors present were placed under the command of the Chief Secretary, Dick Baker, rounded up 30 Argentine nationals living in Port Stanley and placed them in protective custody next to the Police Station, he recalls: There were a few local people to arrest, I remember being apologetic to them, saying,'Because you are Argentine or married to an Argentine, or work for LADE we have got to take you into custody.' We put them in the refreshment room of the Town Hall, near the Police Station. The nine sailors came back to Government House, where they established an information service, leaving the prisoners in custody of RN Lieutenant Ball; the Argentine amphibious operation began in the late evening of Thursday 1 April, when the destroyer ARA Santisima Trinidad disembarked special naval forces south of Stanley.
The bulk of the Argentine force was to land some hours from the amphibious warfare ship ARA Cabo San Antonio near the airport, on a beach marked by frogmen from the submarine ARA Santa Fe. The operation had been called Azul during the planning stage, but it was renamed Rosario. Operation Rosario began with the reconnaissance of Port William by the submarine ARA Santa Fe and the landing of 14 members of the tactical divers group near Cape Pembroke, including the commander of this elite unit, Lieutenant-Commander Alfredo Raúl Cufré; the reconnaissance mission began as early as 31 March, when the trawler Forrest was spotted through the periscope at 10:00 PM off Port Stanley. The next day, Santa Fe learned that the authorities in Stanley were aware of the Argentine plans, so a change was necessary. Instead of landing right on Pembroke, the commandos would take a beach near Menguera Point, south of Kidney Island; the commandos left Santa Fe at 1:40 PM. From the beach, the special troops headed towards Pembroke peninsula in Zodiac boats.
They reached Yorke Bay at 4:30 AM of 2 April. After planting beacons for the main landing, they took over the airstrip and the lighthouse without resistance. Argentine sources claim. After the British surrender at Port Stanley, this team was given the task of gathering the Royal Marines and taking them into custody. On the night of 1-2 April 1982, Santísima Trinidad halted 500 metres off Mullet Creek and lowered 21 Gemini assault craft into the water, they contained 84 special forces troopers of Lieutenant-Commander Guillermo Sánchez-Sabarots's 1st Amphibious Commandos Group and a small party under Lieutenant-Commander Pedro Giachino, second-in-command of the 1st Marine Infantry Battalion and had volunteered for the mission, to capture Government House. The Argentine Rear Admiral Jorge Allara, through a message radioed from Santisima Trinidad, had requested to Rex Hunt a peaceful surrender, but the proposal was rejected. Giachino's party had the shortest distance to go: two and a half miles due north.
Moody Brook Barracks, the destination of the main party, was six miles away, over rough terrain. Lieutenant-Commander Sánchez-Sabarots, in the book The Argentine Fight for the Falklands, describes the main party's progress in the dark: It was a nice night, with a moon, but the cloud covered the moon for most of the time, it was
