Aceh Qanun No. 3 of 2008 on Local Parties Participating in the People's Representative Council Elections

This qanun regulates the election of local political parties for the Acehnese People's Representative Council (DPRA) and Regency/Municipal People's Representative Councils. Controversially, it mandates that prospective members of both councils have received certification testifying to their competence in reciting the Qur'an. The elucidation of the qanun explains that what is meant by competence in Qur'anic recitation is an ability to read the Qur'an; that accurate pronunciation (ilmu tajwid), fluency (fasahah), and intonation (lagu) is not required.
