Does anyone know why a political term of office is almost always 4 years? Of course, it's a compromise between continuity and securing that the person in office has the people's mandate. But it seems to me that the same compromise could be accomplished with a term of 3 or 5 years, no?—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)
