Duties of the Vice-President
The Vice-President is required to take on any of the Presidential duties when invited to do so by the President or when the President is, for reasons unable to undertake those duties. If, for any reason, the President's office falls vacant, the Vice-Presidents should act as interim President until a new one is elected.
