There are localities in Malaysia where local government performance is systematically superior and others
where it is inferior. Similar institutions perform systematically better here than there always opens up queries

democratic governance in Malaysia, this paper aims on the decision-makers and researchers to assess and
explain local government performance. Thus, this paper try looking forward the concept of local government

economic, political, legal, cultural and social factors on the other.
