The Vice President is the second highest national official elected by the people.

The Vice President should possess the same qualifications as the President. He is elected in the same manner and for the same term as the Prsident. He may be appointed by the President as a member of his Cabinet or as head of an executive department. Such an appointmet requires no confirmation from the Commission on Appointments of Congress.

The office is very important because the Vice President becomes the President when this position becomes vacant either due to resignation, removal or impeachment, incapacitation, or death.

The Vice President cannot serve for more than two successive terms.
