The Vice President must be fired just like any other staff member. Employment is based on the will and good treatment of the principle executive, and in this case that person is the President who appoints Vice Presidents as well. There’s nothing to stop a newly elected president from completely re-organizing their administration by dismissing all of their subordinates, including current VPs, and appointing new ones with a clean slate.
The Vice President is the president of the Senate and fourth in line to act as president, so the vice president can be fired but may find that s/he has nowhere left to go.
It’s a long road up for this office holder from there. Even if he or she doesn’t resign, the veep position has no other responsibilities or salary–so it wouldn’t be easy to find another job when you’re fired from your current one. Plus, corporations still have a hard time considering someone who was once an employee of one of their major competitors (and “vice” implies “secondary”).
The Vice President of the United States serves at a pleasure of the president. Therefore, the Vice President can be fired from their job by the President at any time!
No, the VP cannot be fired by the President.
Information to include in the answer: Yes, if it was written into the Vice Presidential’s contract that he can only be fired by Congress.
Although it is unclear whether or not the VP could actually be fired himself – it appears that he would have to resign first and then withdraw his resignation before a vote passes in both houses of congress. Nevertheless it does seem as though anything other than death or inability to discharge their duties is grounds for removal from office.
The VP should also not be confused with a lieutenant who dies while on active duty – which would require an accelerated congressional vote.
No, he can’t.
Why? The Vice President of the United States serves at the discretion of the President. And in case you didn’t know, it has long been established that Presidents cannot serve more than two terms in office. And even though it’s not specifically ruled out constitutionaly, there are strong (though not accepted) arguments as to why a President-elect should served less than a full term before vacating their position at which point they would be taking over from an incumbent.
The Vice President can be fired by the House of Representatives with a two thirds vote.
The U.S. Constitution (Article II, Section 1) states that “In Case of Removal of the Vice President from Office, or his Death, Resignation, or Inability to discharge the Powers and Duties of the said office,” the power is transferred to functioning Speaker as president until a new Vice President is elected.
Not under the constitution, but he could ask his Vice President to resign.
The answer boils down to whether or not the president is able to fire a Vice President. It’s inconclusive in regards to constitutionality, but nearly everyone agrees that the president could simply ask his Vice President for resignation and it would be tricky to refuse. The Vice President serves at the pleasure of the president, which means they are only holding their position if it pleases their superior.
Yes and no. The Vice President cannot be fired by the President, but the Vice President is free to step down from their position on his own accord.
Usually Vice Presidents will not resign voluntarily because they have a higher chance of obtaining Presidential powers in under three years than if they were thrown out.
Nevertheless some recent instances include George Bush Sr to Bush Jr as well as Reagan to Bush Sr for no particular reason other than personal reasons. But in light of these things it has been stated by multiple sources (including Wiki) that it is not recommended that any Vice Presidential inquires do themselves in when trouble arises with either Congress or a popular vote begins taking place because “you might never know what could happen”
The president and vice president hold office for the same four-year term, so if one is elected president then both become president. But this doesn’t matter because the Constitution also provides that the “Vice President may not be appointed to serve in any other government office.” Appointing a vice-president to an executive government position would be unconstitutional; therefore, there are no examples of it happening.
Since the Vice President is a major of the President, and the President is the commander in chief of to military forces, it’s legally possible for him to fire the vice president.
Axiomatically: All objects change with time; this includes physical matter and ideas. For Example: a tree grows as an idea or process expands from its central root throughout all limbs and leaves sprouting from it. The rate at which these changes occur, reflects our ability to accommodate them and generate new structures that are able to respond appropriately towards this environment – reflecting positive change (adaptation). In contrast, negative change would reflect a lack of accommodation for environmental demands demanding radical changes or complete transformation (metamorphosis).
