The election process starts thirty days before the end of the temnure of the incumbent President or ten days after the office becomes vacant for any reason and is concluded within thirty days following the start of the process. In the calculation of this duration, days when the parliament is on recess are not taken into consideration. The candidate to be elected as the TCA President should take the vote of the absolute majority of the attendees, and this number should not be less than one-fourth of the total number of the members of the Parliament. The tenure of the President is five years, for a renewable second period. The term of office of the incumbent President continues until the new President assumes office. The former President continues serving as a member of the TCA without seeking a vacant position; the first vacant position is assigned to him and he is considered as the most senior member.
