Intelligence tests for presidential candidates, and how do Indonesians fare in world IQ rankings.
According to a 2008 law on electoral procedures (No 42 2008/Pemilihan Umum Presiden dan Wakil Presiden) candidates for president must undergo a spiritual/mental test, as well as a health check.
The "spiritual" test is carried out by a psychiatrist while Abdul Aziz from the Electoral Commission, Komisi Pemilihan Umum, says the KPU has not yet determined whether such a test will also include an intelligence test. If an IQ test were required he said the minimal acceptable score would be 120. tempo
According to one aggregate of international IQ testing average Indonesian IQ is a middling 87, above most African, middle eastern, and Latin American countries, while below most north east Asian and European nations.
The top 7 ranked countries are all ethnic Chinese (highest is Hong Kong & Singapore, score of 108), except for Japan and the two Koreas. It is not clear what the ethnic make-up of the test subjects in Indonesia was. wiki
