If José Gabriel Carrizo assumes as Charge of the Presidency, he would be out of the presidential race in 2024.

Article 187 of the Magna Carta establishes that the President and the Vice President of the Republic may be separated from their positions by means of a license that, when it does not exceed 90, will be granted by the Cabinet Council. For more than that time, a license from the National Assembly will be required.

When for any reason the absences of the President cannot be filled by the Vice President, one of the Ministers of State, who will be elected by majority vote, will exercise the Presidency, who must meet the necessary requirements to be President of the Republic and will have the title of Minister in Charge of the Presidency.

Article 189 states that due to absolute absence of the President, the Vice President will assume the position for the rest of the period.

When there is an absolute absence of the President and the Vice President at least two years before the expiration of the presidential term (July 1, 2022), a Minister in Charge of the Presidency will call for elections on a date not later than four months, so that the elected take office within six months of the call, for the rest of the period.

When for any reason the absolute lack of the President cannot be filled by the Vice President, one of the Ministers will exercise the Presidency, who will be elected by majority vote.

In addition, article 192 of the Constitution warns that the citizen who, called to exercise the Presidency due to the absolute absence of the incumbent, may not have exercised it at any time during the three years immediately prior to the election period, may not be elected President of the Republic.
