The post Suharto administration launched Indonesia’s decentralization policy to facilitate democratization at the local level. Disappointment in the centralized regime that suppressed civil society , liquidated traditional institution , homogenized local governments , and famously abused power formed the background of decentralization . This background is very important to understanding the institutional choices , implementation gaps and political and economic challenges of decentralization . While the expectations for decentralization are quite high, which are to develop local democracy and pursue successful development at the same time, decentralization in Indonesia faces great challenges because the long tenure of the previous regime has left many negative consequences.
