The change from a centralized government system to a decentralized system has not shown better changes in the bureaucracy performance, especially public services. Failure to realize the performance of the public bureaucracy cannot be separated from the performance of government officials as implementers of government functions who must have integrity and uphold morality in carrying out their work. The poor performance of the bureaucracy is caused by the low commitment of bureaucratic officials in upholding ethics in the implemention of public services, resulting in many cases of corruption, collusion and nepotism in the government work environment. One of the factors causing this is the continued occurrence of transactional political interests in employee position/career promotions. The desire of bureaucratic officials to obtain positions in the government structure easily encourages government officials to become part of regional leadership politics, through efforts to mobilize support from lower levels of officials and the community in implementing work programs. This situation gives rise to unhealthy employee career competition, and tends to create compartmentalization among bureaucratic apparatus, which has the potential for conflict and creates less conducive conditions, and results in poor performance of the public bureaucracy.
