Constitutional FAQ Answer #72

<<Previous Question | Question Index | Subject Index | Constitutional Index | Next Question>>

Q72. "What is the process for replacing the Vice President if the President leaves office permanently, and not temporarily as with an illness, etc.?"

A. The President appoints a new Vice President on vacancy of that office, as directed in the 25th Amendment. So if Bush were to resign, Cheney would become President, and then appoint a VP. If Cheney were to then resign, that VP would become President and appoint a VP. If Cheney resigns, Bush appoints a VP. And so on.
