He should not hold any other office of profit. 3. He is entitled to such emoluments, allowances and privileges as may be determined by Parliament. 4. His emoluments and allowances cannot be diminished during his term of impeachment are a quasi-judicial procedure in the Parliament. 5.No President has so far been impeached The nominated members of either House of Parliament can participate in the impeachment of the President though they do not participate in his election.
