The institutional aspects of bureaucratic dominance, integration of the sub-district level into the central hierarchy, the introduction of elections of sub-district and village headmen and the often neglected provincial administrative organization are emphasized. The question whether there already exists a politically aware audience, indispensable as a countervailing force to the bureaucracy, is addressed by focusing on the widely used practice of electoral influence peddling and vote-buying. These questions are treated in the context of two major political changes in Thailand: decentralization and a reform of the relationship between the political system and the citizens.
