Local boss and local elite are the main actors who determine how local government is governed at a local level. Democracy and decentralization policies in post-New Order have opened a chance for their presence in local politics. This paper explains about power relation between local boss (Ridwan BAE; Muna Regent) and local actor at local legislative; forestry office; and another local government agency in the management of forestry sector in Muna Regency. This paper is a study case using a qualitative approach. In analyzing data the research uses some concepts of bossism; patronage; and clientelism. The paper concludes that local boss exploited forestry sector particularly teak forest as a political instrument to build patronage and clientelism networks to elite locals in Muna Regency. The networks of the power relation are political and forcing in which local boss uses the networks in order to maintain the power and to gain economic interest.
