Transparency International: Corruption Perception Index 2006

Source of info: Transparency International: CPI 2006 & 2005

What does the statistics tell you? If our PM is in control, why did Malaysia's ranking slip from 39 in year 2005 to 44 in year 2006? It looks like the whole ASEAN region is getting more corrupted except Singapore that is stagnant at 5th and Indonesia that has improved by 7. Our PM has failed in delivering his promise, curbing grafts and reducing corruption.

Corruption ranking slips - Just World president Dr Chandra Muzaffar said that to quell rumours about nepotism, politicians and their families should declare their assets but Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi recently said that there was no need for one. “That was disappointing. They should be able to demonstrate that they are above board,” he said. (The Star, 7th Oct 2006)

When the PM failed to be more transparent, what can you expect from a transparency survey? Slipping? I am not surprised.

Interesting statistic! One area of transparency i would very much like to see is the public work tender & award. Little dot had used the internet to publish all their public works tenders & awards for nearly 6 years already.

It is time discrimination in award of work to cronies and kaki lang be scrapped. The closed system of tender is not benefitting the malay themselves if they are not in the inner circle.
