Question

What is the process of Impeachment of the President?

Solution

Article 61 of the Constitution prescribes that the President can be impeached by the Parliament if a President begins to act against the provision of the Constitution or is found guilty of misusing his status and position or found involved in corruption. He may be impeached out of office. Charges can be framed by either of the two houses of Parliament by a two-third majority. A 14 days notice signed by atleast one-fourth of the total number of members has to be given.
The other House investigates the charges and sustains them by 2/3rd majority of the total membership of that House, the President is impeached.
