Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

However, the federal government has been playing a direct role in the choosing/appointing of those who are responsible for local infrastructure.  This is "managed democracy."  

Not really, the new system of elections of the governors is pretty new, and about 3-5 governors were changed this way. At the moment the rest 80+ owe their post to popular elections.
