Transparency International Report Reveals Pakistan More Corrupt Than Before
A report released by Transparency International (TI), an international non-governmental organization based in Berlin has ranked Pakistan 120 out of 180 countries on the Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) 2019.
The scale used by CPI considers 0 as highly corrupt and 100 very clean. The score of Pakistan – 32/100 – is way below the CPI average of 43 for the year 2019.
The Berlin-based non-profit releases the index every year, ranking 180 countries and territories by their perceived levels of public sector corruption, according to experts and business people. Pakistan was ranked at the 117th place for the years 2017 and 2018.
People on social media have commented on the development saying that the PTI government’s rhetoric against corruption and its accountability drive does not seem to be working.
