Pakistan maintains 140th spot on Transparency International ranking
Pakistan ranked 140 out of 180 countries on Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index (CPI) in 2022, according to the report released on Monday.
Though Pakistan’s position was unchanged from 2021, its overall CPI score fell to 27 out of 100. Last year it was 28 out of 100.
”Pakistan […] continued its statistically significant downward trend, this year hitting its lowest score since 2012 at just 27 points amidst ongoing political turmoil,” Transparency International said.
The index ranks 180 countries and territories by their perceived levels of public-sector corruption according to experts and business people. it relies on 13 independent data sources and uses a scale of zero to 100, where zero is highly corrupt and 100 is very clean.
Pakistan is among the 10 nations whose CPI score has significantly declined since 2017. Among the biggest declines are Luxembourg (77), Canada (74), the United Kingdom (73), Austria (71), Malaysia (47), Mongolia (33), Pakistan (27), Honduras (23), Nicaragua (19) and Haiti (17).
