Alaska: Levi Johnston says there are really no qualifications to hold the job that Sarah Palin once held — that of mayor of Wasilla, Alaska.

Johnston, the father of Palin`s grandson, was grilled on "The View" Monday about his mayoral ambitions.

In August, Johnston`s manager confirmed Johnston`s plans to run for the office as part of a reality TV show and insisted he was serious about it.

Johnston said the only real qualification is to live in the city limits for a year before the election. He believes he`s as qualified as any other candidate, saying he believes it`s important to listen to the people and their concerns.

Johnston said he has no platform, which drew groans from the round-table.
