Example of Oath of Office

An oath of office is an oath sworn by an elected official, under which the person accepts the responsibilities of office and undertakes to carry out the office in accordance with law. In most cases the oath is a traditional statutory-based oath, which is required by connection with the constitution of the electoral jurisdiction. Modern oaths are considered ceremonial, but are in practice part of the formal taking of office, and in practice it's a technical default if the oath is not taken.

Examples of Oath of Office:

Oath of acceptance by elected American presidents.
Oath of office under the Westminster system of government.
