Keywords:Administration, Decentralization, Democracy, Historical Perspective, Governance Local Government
This research paper investigates the Pakistan's local government structure in historical context. To acquire a deeper understanding of the possible reason for the decentralization, the paper examines its history within a historical perspective and is to take a look at the local government system in terms of their involvement and contribution to the country and an overview of decentralization reforms from the pre-independence era to the 1985–1999 local government revolution. This research is descriptive and analytical in nature. Examining how the local government system has changed over time is fascinating because an important development was made to create this experiment. The majority of research on decentralization in developing countries shows that the reasons behind the failure of power delegation are either systemic shortcomings in local government, ineffective entrenched party capture of local authority, or a combination of these factors. The failure to strengthen the grassroots democratic system and the inadequate local administration conveyance were the drawbacks.
