Hi, What is the meaning of qualifying deadline ? here is the relevant text:

The qualifying deadline passed with no other fireworks. Justice Calligan from the central district and Justice Bateman from the northern escaped opposition and were safe for another eight years.

Furthermore, Why it says eight years ?while according to the context the terms of office in supreme court is nine years.

Thanks
