Answer: Tori/Nage. The particular technique or variation used may result from some movement/reaction done by Uke, giving Uke an aspect in determining what technique may manifest itself, but by the time the technique is manifested the Tori is supposed to be in total control of Uke and as a result determines the final outcome of the technique.

Just my take.
