While researching an answer for another question, I discovered that the constitution of Azerbaijan requires a presidential candidate to have a university degree. This seemed unique to me.

What other national elected offices require a certain level of education?

Within this question I am interested in elected offices, but not those specific to technical professions. For example, if a city somewhere elects their building inspector I am not interested (because it is obviously a requirement of their profession).

    Do you count judges, attorney generals, etc. as "technical professions?" – cpast Aug 18 '16 at 16:45
  • I hadn't thought of them, but I am open to that as an answer. – indigochild Aug 18 '16 at 18:36
  • I think that is very broad. There are many countries in the world, almost all of them have various degrees of elected public offices. Would you consider narrowing down a little? – bilbo_pingouin Aug 25 '16 at 6:56

    Kind of related to certain fictional countries that require military service to be a citizen. – K Dog Jul 11 '18 at 17:12

    The fact that someone hasn't come up with an answer doesn't mean that it is too broad. – ohwilleke Jul 11 '18 at 17:13
