The survey was released on Wednesday. As per the Transparency international’s survey, majority of the Pakistanis (85%) are not satisfied with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government’s self-accountability. 66.8% are of the opinion that the federal government’s accountability drive is partial.
The survey also identified the three most important causes of corruption: weak accountability (51.9%), the greed of powerful people (29.3%) and low salaries (18.8%).
According to the 89.1% of Pakistanis, they didn’t pay any bribe to any government official during the federal government’s Covid-19 relief efforts for the deserving citizens to get things done. “Compared to the three federal governments, majority of Pakistanis (92.9%) consider inflation and price hike to be highest in the current PTI government (2018-2021), compared to 4.6 % in PML N government (2013-2018) and 2.5% in PPP government (2008-2013),” the transparency international survey revealed.
