TIS poll: Corruption fourth most serious social problem

CORRUPTION is the fourth most serious problem facing society, according to a poll carried out by Transparency International Slovakia. Living standards, unemployment, and health care, fill out the top three spots, respectively.

Corruption has concentrated into areas such as public procurement, state funding, and party financing in recent years, TIS stated, but the country has achieved great progress since 2000 in decreasing the perception of corruption among the public, the Hospodárske noviny wrote.

As many as 82 percent Slovaks believe corruption takes place in the public procurement process.

TIS therefore appealed to all political parties to include anti-corruption measures in their party platforms ahead of the June general elections.
