In this country, only a Constitutional Court judge is called a statesperson. This means other state officials may not be so.

Article 15 of Law No. 8/2011, which replaced Law No. 24/2003 on the Constitutional Court, stipulates that a constitutional judge must meet several requirements. They must possess integrity and a reputable personality, demonstrate fairness and have the capacity to be a statesperson with knowledge of the constitution and state affairs. There is no other law that requires a candidate for any other official state positions, including president and vice president, to have the capacities of a statesperson.
