Regard to the re-election of the vice-President constitution

The constitution is absolutely silent

Places a clear ban

Permits re-election only once

The constitution permits re-election for a maximum of two terms

The Vice President holds office for five years. The Vice President can be re-elected any number of times. However, the office may be terminated earlier by death, resignation, or removal.

The Constitution does not provide a mechanism of succession to the office of Vice President in the event of an extraordinary vacancy, apart from re-election. However, the Deputy Chairman of the Rajya Sabha can perform the Vice President’s duties as the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha in such an event.
