ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Qanun 3/2008 on Local Political Parties, a local regulation in Aceh, Indonesia that requires election candidates to satisfy a Qur'an recitation test to be eligible to contest an election. It notes that the Qur'an recitation requirement raises questions concerning the scope of special autonomy in the province and the extent of its authority to pass syariah law. Under Qanun 3/2008, a religious requirement that must be met by prospective candidates is that they must be God-fearing people who obey the teachings of their religion.
