- The local government’s success of the development acceleration and the governance is currently dependent on the four dimensions of its supporters. One of them is the aspect of the leader who has the authority and function in designing the trajectory framework of the regional development policy in his area. In the process of democratic consolidation which is increasingly inclusive, the emergence of new leaders and elites in the constellation of local elections progressively colors political contestation in the regions. The performance achievements of the leaders and the regional development through the ranking formulated by the Ministry of Home Affairs in four assessment mechanisms show interesting results and data to study more deeply. This study tries to describe the backgrounds of local leaders that have implications for the central and local government’s performance. This background has the significance and determination of the local leader ranking index. The results of this study indicate that the leaders who have Professional and Academic backgrounds have higher and better ranks compared to the ones who are politicians that may have political relations to cartels and clientelism within the locus of local government.
