    Improved local governance has been the spirit of decentralization in Indonesia. Enacted not long after the start of the reformasi era in 1998, and effective since 2001, Law 22/1999 on Regional Government explicitly stated that democratic principles and public participation would be the basis of regional autonomy. The law also referred to various decrees issued by the People's Consultative Assembly (Majelis Permusyawaratan Rakyat, MPR) in 1998 to reform governance and counter corruption. The revised law on regional government (Law 32/2004) continues to emphasise the importance of community empowerment, grassroots participation and democratic principles to accelerate people's welfare and improve regional competitiveness.
