Removal Process of State Chief Executives Under the 1999 Constitution

Year : 2008

The study examines the law and process of removal against the backdrop of the repeated removal of state chief executives. It attempts to answer the questions: what are the conditions precedents for initiating a removal of a governor or a deputy governor under section 188 of the 1999 constitution? And what is the meaning of two thirds majority in section 188(4) of the 1999 constitution? The research aims at producing a referral material for processes of removal of the state chief executives who grossly abuse their office; and provide guidance on processes of removal of state chief executives.
