As they always say "The older you are the more experience you have". Some countries of the world are been ruled and controlled by old men/women and those countries they control are doing perfectly well in the international system.
Some people categorize old people as being weak and unable to control or manage their country just because they are looking sick. This is not true, most developed countries of the world are been controlled by old people. For example, the world's most developed country which is the USA is been ruled by Joe Biden who is currently 78 years old. Even before Joe Biden became the new president, Donald Trump was in the position and he was 74 years. So, I think a country should allow old people to rule instead of the younger ones because they tend to have more experience.
