A. Qualifications of a servant of a country.
The focus is servanthood to whomever will enter the politics to become a president and vice president. The qualifications set forth in the bible still stands. They are namely: (a) good and attested character and repute, (b) full of the HOLY SPIRIT and wisdom. It seems like the requirements is for a believer to rule and reign, yes it is. A throne or any form of government to be established in righteousness needs righteous rulers to begin with and propagate GOD'S WORDS to all residents or inhabitants of any country.
1. good and attested character and repute
2. full of the HOLY SPIRIT and wisdom.
Acts 6:3 (Amplified Bible)
Therefore select out from among yourselves, brethren, seven men of good and attested character and repute, full of the [Holy] Spirit and wisdom, whom we may assign to look after this business and duty.
Even in the old testament the same qualifications are needed. Since the HOLY SPIRIT is not yet given or revealed in the old testament, we have three qualifiers for a politician, namely: (a) able men, (b) GOD-fearing men of truth, (c) hates unjust gain.
Exodus 18:21 (Amplified Bible)
Moreover, you shall choose able men from all the people—God-fearing men of truth who hate unjust gain—and place them over thousands, hundreds, fifties, and tens, to be their rulers.
1. able men
2. GOD-fearing men of truth
3. hates unjust gain
And in another, we can see..

When a land transgresses, it has many rulers, but when the ruler is a man of discernment, understanding, and knowledge, its stability will long continue.

1 Kings 19:18 (Amplified Bible)
