Pakistan slips down in absence of corruption index with 116th ranking: Survey

  • The WJP’s Rule of Law Index 2020 reflects that Pakistan’s score on the index (0.31) fell in 2020 from (0.32) in 2019
Published November 11, 2020

(Karachi) Pakistan has been ranked 116th among 128 countries on the absence of corruption index, a World Justice Project (WJP) Survey conducted by Gallup Pakistan stated on Wednesday.

As per the report, the survey results are based on Factor 2 of the WJP Rule of Law Index which measures the absence of corruption in government. The Index is the world’s leading source for original, independent data on the rule of law.

The factor considers three forms of corruption: bribery, improper influence by public or private interests, and misappropriation of public funds or other resources. These three forms of corruption are examined with respect to government officers in the executive branch, the judiciary, the military, police, and the legislature.

The WJP’s Rule of Law Index 2020 reflects that Pakistan’s score on the index (0.31) fell in 2020 from (0.32) in 2019, thus indicating a fall in Pakistan’s performance on the absence of corruption index.

A WJP report published in The News stated that Pakistan has improved or retained its ranking and scores in some factors including Regulatory Enforcement and Civil Justice. The World Justice Project’s report highlights that more countries declined in overall rule of law performance for the third year in a row, continuing a negative slide towards weakening and stagnating rule of law.
