: This is an idea, not a serious suggestion. Consider a political system in which getting re-elected to an office requires a bigger percentage of the vote than being elected to that office for the first time. The nth time you stand for election you have to get over 50+k(n-1) percent of the vote, or you trigger some kind of instant runoff. This achieves some of the anti-corruption advantages of term limits while mitigating the anti-experience bias created by term limits.
