• Politics of a country need to move with the will of the country

    As societies evolve each generation must have its voices heard not interned in the thoughts of older generations but rather invoked in the conditions of the day and enlightened in thinking of the times. No free society can remain free without changing with time and understanding of the world around them.

  • We are supposed to be represented by The People

    We are now governed by politicians and we are supposed to be represented by ordinary citizens. And we are not a democracy, We are a republic which means we are not to be dominated by the majority.
    We are in eminent danger of losing that precious gift from the founders of this nation.

  • Congress looks like an assisted living facility or.....

    A wax museum. Diane Feinstein running for reelection at age 84!!! She'd be 91 when her term is over. Absolutely ridiculous. Many large companies have executive mandatory retirement age policies......Why is Congress exempt? It proves to me that many of the decisions being made are the result of congressional staff intervention as opposed to the elected officials lucid thought process.

  • Because its india need, and india want to...

    Old ones should be replace by our new generation , as we know the wrong and right of our country. The old ones r just filling up their stomach with money , they even doesn't bother about the country.. I just want those old and lazy politicians to be replaced..

  • Youth is the future of next generation

    As it is said that youth is the future of next generation then how an old politician can decide the future. There should be certain age limit. We have certain age limit for gov't servant or private job holder why they are not allowed till their choice to work. Politician should also be retired after certain so the new generation get the opportunity to serve for the country.

  • Retirement is compulsory

    If government companies (ex. SBI, BSNL and many more) are retire their employes after maximum age of 60. If a single company is not allow the 60+ aged people. Then why should nation allow the 60+ people. If a company know that the 60+ people can't work for company, then how can we expect the work from the politicions who are already above 70.

  • Senior politicians hold out-dated views

    In the modern age, the educational and political gap between generations is larger than ever. I would argue that most of Gen X & Y are socially liberal and economically conservative. However current politicians, with a average age of 66 in Western democratic countries, hold much more out-dated views. We need to have representation of the future demographic, not the old one

  • There should be a retirement age for politicians

    As all government servants have the retirement for 65 years , for politicians also should have retirement age. All government servants work hard for the nation they are getting retirement but politicians not getting.Politicians must retire at the age of 65 or 70,it gives a chance to other people.Politicians at the age of 70 they are not willing to work properly because their physical,mental conditions are not good.So encourage the young people to enter into politics.

  • I believe there should be a retitement age for politicians as well as term limits!

    Normal full retirement age is 65 to 67 years old depending on what year you are born. Politicians should have to retire by age 65 or 70,so that new younger politicians can take thier place. I read recently that the current California state representative's have held there positions for a combined total of 80 years! That means each 1 has served more than 20 years,it is time to force these people to retire. They need to make a rule on term limits too the president can only run for two terms so why do the senate and congress get unlimited terms,they should be allowed 4 terms for congress and 2 for the senate total,which would be a total of 20 years.

  • No, no retirement age, but term limits

    Politicians are like every one of us, they age differently and have the desire to continue working or retire at different times in their lives. Just because a person is old it does not mean they cannot be an effective leader and contribute to society, nor does it mean they will become "set in their ways" and block progress of new ideas. They do need to have limits on how many terms they can serve so that there is room for fresh ideas to emerge, and to ensure that one way of thinking does not dominate the political scene.

  • No

    All people have a right to work as long as they want and they are elected by the people so therefor they should not have to retire. If people are liking the job that they are doing and are still voting for them to be back in office than they should be allowed to stay.

  • The government should fall out of hand to the young people

    Middle age men have to follow the rule of government law absolutely if let that happen the world will turn upside down I think there no retirement age for politicians because the old politicians no more than the young experience matter a lots we both understand young and old is part and parcel of the government but the old have veto power than the youth yes that right you no when you are older you are more knowledgeable and full of wisdom.

  • It's totally undoubtedly that there should not be a age limit for politicians.

    Because politics need a deep study of country's economic conditions and knowing the society clearly so it will definitely take some time to become a leader in politics. But I am not saying that youth should not get chance, they should get chance but not in politics because if our youth try to develop our country so don't they go for defence in which place they can serve our country batter than in politics.

  • NO, there should not be one !

    The very concept of 'retirement age' fit best for any employed individual, one who is a regular salaried employee of any organisation... 'Politics' ideally is not a 'Job' but a mean of selfless service to the people of the country, politicians are not 'self styled' individuals rather they are popular individuals with extraordinary leadership capability, and leadership has nothing to do with the age. Father of our nation Mahatma Gandhi was about 79 years old when he died but he led million till his last day, J.P.Narayan was above 75 when he led a countrywide movement against emergency, our Sardar Patel was about 75 when he actually unified the fragmented country... But I acknowledge the fact that with age things get very difficult, and things become really very challenging... We have a minimum age for election, so why can't we have a upper age limit for holding public offices... But I still feel a politician should take his own call on retirement age, and mechanizing every aspect is not a good idea....

  • No limit needed

    Someone who wants to work can work throughout his life without any disturbance the law has given entire freedom entire freedom to everyone to work till their heart desire . If anyone wants to serve he has full freedom to work . He cannot be banned for anything he does

  • The mind is ageless.

    Unlike the body, the mind can be dull or robust at any age. When elections can be won with advertising and good looks, wisdom is in short supply. Wisdom is knowing how to use one's knowledge and experience. Both come with age. We must trust the voters to make the decision, without limitation.
