    Meaning of "To the extent that" in a sentence.

    Can someone please explain what is the meaning of "to the extent that" in the following sentence.

    To the extent that the centralisation of leadership runs contrary to the principles of organisational equity and delegated political authority, the DMK and AIADMK developed institutional weakness in terms of over-reliance on those leaders.

    Thank you.
