The establishment of a government in the village is of course based on interregional regulation is the Village Law which is a set of rules concerning the administration of village government, with consideration has evolved in various forms so it needs to be protected and empowered to be strong, advanced, independent and democratic so as to create a foundation Strong in implementing governance and development towards a just, prosperous and prosperous society.

One of the most crucial points in the discussion of the Village Bill is related to the budget allocation for the village, in the elucidation of Article 72 Paragraph 2 on Village Finance. The amount of direct budget allocations to villages is set at 10 per cent from and outside of regional transfers. Then considered the population, poverty, area, geography difficulties. This is in order to improve the village community because it is estimated that each village will get funding of about 1.4 billion based on the calculation in the explanation of the village law that is, 10 percent of the regional transfer funds according to APBN for the village apparatus of Rp. 59, 2 trillion, coupled with funds from the APBD of 10 percent about Rp. 45.4 trillion.
