If we were sure about the deserving getting their due we would not have this topic. Let us forget about the reservation of jobs for the time being but even then a lot of jobs are acquired by unfair means eg letter of recomendation from politicians, by virtue of being related to some bigwig, or even by bribing ones way into a job. Merit is not always the criteria for selection.

@ Bold: So?
So it would not be fair to restrict voting rights to tax payers when there there may be non tax payers (by virtue of their being jobless though  no fault of theirs)

I agree with the rationale of aptitude tests. People should have at least a simple cognitive understanding to know what is going on and make rational decisions.  No one has to be genius or even educated to pass this.

 

How about making the election candidate also take this test
There must be some minimum qualifying criteria along with some reputation regarding honesty, and capability

Of course everyone involved in the democratic process should have some competency - Leaders, voters as well as all levels of civil service.
