Ah... what you mean is that his "term of office (or just plain "term") has not expired yet.Sorry guys for not being precise. what I was referring to is " the term of duty " I was trying to say that "the current president of Russia should continue to be president, and suddenly decided to choose a new one"
I think that we're now talking about two different things here, SRPGgamer. It is incorrect to say "...the current one has/is not expired yet" when what you mean to refer to is his term of office. To say that someone has expired means that he died.Well, the full sentence should be "According to the CNN, Russia is choosing a new president, isn't it ? why? I thought, the current one has/is not expired yet! "
Dimcl: in certain cases, they are interchangeable, aren't they? I think "is expired" is a passive form, suggesting the current president is not supposed to be expired <---I think using passive form here is grammatically correct. Could you explain for me ?
