Abstract

The concept of decentralization is most frequently described as the changing relationship between the state and society as well as the center and periphery. Therefore, local power after the decentralization process can play significant roles in checks and balances over the exercise of power in national politics. (Diamond and Tsalik, 1999) The political and administrative decentralization started in the western world since the 1970s, and many developing countries emerging from authoritarian rules have started to carry out an extensive range of decentralization reform in order to transfer their dominant central power to regions. Asian countries are no exceptions to such a world- wide trend. Newly democratized nations, even the communist country China, and some of Islamic countries have introduced certain forms of local democracy. (Treisman, 2007; White and Smoke, 2005)
