Can I paint over existing paint on a wooden staircase?

My wooden staircase has existing old paint on the sides of each step and raiser. Probably, there used to be a central runner. Can I just paint over the existing paint (after sanding) or I need to completely remove the old paint first?
I am a first time DIYer, any answer would be super helpful!
