Resumen

La sucesión en la presidencia de los Estados Unidos ha sufrido una evolución significativa desde sus comienzos, con la primera redacción de la Constitución, hasta la última reforma introducida por la XXVª enmienda, por entender que su contenido no era claro y daba lugar a diferentes interpretaciones, marcando un punto de inflexión en el constitucionalismo moderno. A pesar de las nuevas redacciones y las tendencias políticas de las fuerzas gobernantes, se reconoce implícitamente el principio de continuidad presidencial, en relación con el principio de continuidad del partido político que ha ganado las elecciones y gobierna los Estados Unidos, para dotar de seguridad jurídica al pueblo americano y a las instituciones democráticas. Se puede afirmar que el principio democrático junto con la legitimidad constitucional, rigen el orden sucesorio presidencial.

Palabras clave:
