Meritocracy in Indonesia is a myth.

Countries like Singapore had a meritocracy in its government system. Not all countries have this kind of system, in which the person who rule the country (such as: president, king) is elected because of their talents, their speciality. The fact that developed countries like United States and Singapore have meritocracy system can not be hindered. They believed by having this kind of system will lead them to have a good prospect leader for the country. Meanwhile, some developing countries such as Indonesia did not 'acknowledge' meritocracy. Indonesia chose its leader by looking at the 'status', the job, race and religion.
