This paper empirically examines the effect of majority coalitions in district governments on fiscal outcomes and service access in Indonesia. Applying a regression discontinuity approach, the paper finds that district governments with majority coalitions raise more own-revenues and spend more than district governments with minority coalitions. Increased health spending and improved access to health services are among the observed outcomes.
