In the United States, the president's term of office is four years. For many years, presidents were expected to serve no more than two consecutive terms, but there was no law about it-- in fact, President Franklin D. Roosevelt was elected four times. But in 1951, the 22nd Amendment went into effect and now no president can serve more than two consecutive terms, or eight years.
