The Supreme Court and high court judges retire at the age of 65 but no age bar set for the rulers of the country. After a certain age is attained, the politician can remain in the ministry as an adviser of sorts, and a new younger person can be appointed for the actual post.

There should be entry age and retirement age from Politics , if examples are given for very few politicians that they at higher age did miracles , we can ask that a person can serve the country even without chair , similarly Politics is career and hence man must enter at specific age in this profession.
