Regional autonomy is a follow-up to the implementation of the theory of democracy that was applied through the theory of decentralization. This means that regional autonomy itself is born from decentralization, while decentralization itself is born from the implementation of the essence of democracy. In Indonesia the problem of democracy is regulated in Article 1 paragraph (2) of the 1945 Constitution which states: "Sovereignty is in the hands of the people and carried out according to the Constitution. The change in the paradigm of regional autonomy which was marked by the issuance of Law Number 22 Year 1999 concerning Regional Government, which was later renewed through Law Number 32 of 2004 and renewed through Law Number 23 Year 2014 concerning Regional Government, and there were changes related to points regional head elections which were finally amended by Law Number 2 of 2015, and amended again by Law Number 9 of 2015 concerning Regional Government. It indicates that the dynamics of the legal politics of regional government that are very dynamic and full of challenges in the future to solve them, still keep the polemic warm enough to be a study. The special status for Yogyakarta, Sultan Hamengku Buwono IX and Paku Alam VIII issued a mandate, on September 5, 1945 stating that the Yogyakarta Palace and Pakualaman Temple were special regions of the Republic of Indonesia.
