regional administrative decentralization leads to the application of democratic principles by enabling local people to manage
their own affairs and they participate in decision-making, in addition to allowing minorities to choose their representatives to
participate in decision-making, which helps in the unity of the country. As well as, the regional administrative
decentralization helps to reduce routine and improve the delivery of public services. However, there are several obstacles to
the implementation of administrative decentralization are the lack of experience of the local entities and the lack of financial
resources as well as accountability. In addition to the fear of division in countries that consist of multiple nationalities and
religions. Some countries such as France implemented the administrative decentralization in stages. France succeeded in
decentralization in stages since 1982, but the decentralization experiment at the beginning of the French Revolution in 1789
