Who among the following can terminate the term of the Governor of a state?
The term of governor's office is normally 5 years but it can be terminated earlier by: (I) Dismissal by the president (usually on the advice of the prime minister of the country) at whose pleasure the governor holds office. Dismissal of Governors without valid reason is not permitted. However, it is the duty of the President to dismiss a Governor whose acts are upheld by courts as unconstitutional. (II) Resignation by the governor.
