Inauguration

An inauguration is a formal ceremony to mark the beginning of a major political leader's term of office. The "inaugural address" is a speech given during this ceremony which informs the people of his/her intentions as a leader. Political inaugurations often feature lavish ceremonies, in which the politician publicly takes his or her oath of office in front of a large crowd of spectators. The equivalent ceremony in another jurisdiction may be called a "swearing-in".
