No Corruption Survey in Pakistan This Year

No corruption survey in Pakistan this year!

Transparency International's world headquarters released the global network's 2010 Annual Report this week.

Transparency International Pakistan (TIP) Chairman Adil Gilani recently told The News that TIP will not be producing a survey report for 2011!

The democratically-elected government led by Pakistan Peoples Party was unhappy with the report issued in 2010 which placed the current PPP government amongst the most corrupt entities in the world. Respondents viewed this government as more corrupt than that of former dictator Gen Pervez Musharraf.

The 2010 report described three factors -lack of accountability, lack of merit in appointments and low salaries- as the main factors for rising corruption in the country.

Transparency International Pakistan’s (TIP) National Corruption Survey for Pakistan was embarrassing enough for the government that it not only harassed Adil Gilani, but also those students that were involved in the 2011 survey process.
