I\'d use DECENTRALIZING, as it gives you the correct idea expressed in the original text. But DECENTRALIZED is not all wrong. Good luck

\"The political system in Germany is decentralizing/decentralized. The power is distributed among the administrative regions/areas/districts/counties.\"

\"German\'s political system is decentralizing/decentralized since administrative power is distributed among regions/areas/districts/counties.\"
