The authority of a regional executive is diluted if it is shared with a central appointee, as in Thailand where since 2004 changwat are cogoverned by a directly elected chairman and centrally appointed governor (Mutebi 2004).
We regard the introduction of direct elections for changwat executives in Thailand in 1997 as a step toward greater regional authority despite the claim that executives became less, not more, independent from central government influence since many were members of prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra's inner circle (Hicken 2006; Kuhonta 2008).

It is understood that under the Constitution of Thailand a significant proportion of the royalties will flow to the Changwat
(Province) and the Tambons (local councils) in the area of the mine.
This coincidence allows comparisons of attitudes in the Deep South changwat
(provinces) with those found in the rest of the Thai nation.
