There should be age specification for politicians similar to govt Employees. Retierment age may vary but other restrictions and min educational qualification must be there.A govt employee retire at the age of 60.So why not a politician should not retire at the age of 65. They sould not be left scot free for any unlawful work they often do in the name of public interest. Politics is a profession now and a voluntary public service any more. And after 65 years of their age, they promote their children in politics. According to me, A politician should not be allowed to contest more than three elections in their life time.This will promote younger generations to politics. What do you think.
