¨Democracy has swept throughout the world as a basic value and framework of governance over the post three decades.  And decentralization is increasingly coming to be seen as a fundamental democratic principle. 


It is not enough for people simply to be able to choose their national leaders in periodic, free, and fair elections.  In countries of moderate to large size, a good democracy requires that people be able to elect their own local leaders and representatives, and that these local governments have some real power to respond to the needs of the people. 


In short, decentralization is increasingly being demanded from below, through pressure from the grassroots, and is embraced for its potential to enhance the depth and legitimacy of democracy¨
