The design of decentralization in Indonesia includes the transfer of political, fiscal and administrative power from central to local governments, mainly to district governments. Politically, decentralization creates power separation between a local executive and the local council, empowers the local council and gives them discretion to manage domestic affairs based on local initiatives. Fiscally, it guarantees larger shares of the budget to local governments and discretion to spend them based on local needs. Administratively, decentralization transfers most civil servants and public services to local governments. The implications of decentralization for village governments and rural development are great because it aims to democratize village governments, empower communities and change rural development from a top-down to a bottom-up approach
