Statement 1 is incorrect. The minimum age prescribed for a person to be a member of Panchayat is 21 years.

Statement 2 is correct. If a Panchayat is prematurely dissolved before completing its full term, the reconstituted Panchayat will only continue for the remainder of the original term. This ensures that Panchayat elections are held regularly and that the elected representatives serve their full term, unless dissolved prematurely.
