If one is to assess how local representation changes with the integration of traditional authorities into the local governance system, one must analyse it in the context of the other developments in the post-colonial state, and most saliently the most recent drives to decentralisation. Orre argues that the concept of political space for the opposition is an important analytical category to get a broader view of democratisation. This in turn is necessary to assess the political significance of the reforms "traditional authority" to more formalised and important positions within the local governance.
