    Question up for (consideration of) something

    1.) She’s up for consideration for a managerial position.
    2.) Robinson will not be up for parole for another five years.

    Would "She’s up for a managerial position." be equal to sentence 1? Would "Robinson will not be up for consideration for parole for another five years." have more meanings than sentence 2?
