Section 4.16. Section 4.16. Parliament will have the power, in time of war or national public emergency, to extend its term of office for a period not exceeding twelve months, by means of a resolution passed by a two-thirds majority of its members.
Section 4.16. Does this mean a single period of 12 months, or a renewable period? Whilst we hope never to have a war that lasts years, a renewable period might be desirable in extreme circumstances.
