    At the time of their designation, emergency interim successors and special emergency judges shall take such oath as may be required for them to exercise the powers and discharge the duties of the office to which they may succeed. Certificates showing the taking of such oaths shall be filed in the office of the governor, except, in the case of interim successors authorized by sections 185 and 186 of this title, such certificates shall be filed in the office of the county clerk. An emergency interim successor, when the holder of the office to which he may succeed is required to give a bond for the faithful performance of the duties of the office, shall give a bond for the faithful performance of the duties of the office during the period that he shall exercise the powers and discharge the duties thereof and a special emergency judge shall give a bond for the faithful performance of the duties of the office of district judge during the period that he or she shall exercise the powers and discharge the duties thereof. Blanket bonds may be accepted when authorized for holders of offices. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person, as a prerequisite to the exercise of the powers or discharge of the duties of an office to which he or she succeeds, shall be required to comply with any other provisions of law relative to taking office.
