Hungarians consider their country as corrupt

July 10, 2013

According to the majority of Hungarians (61%) corruption has increased in the past two years, and governmental corruption is a serious issue. That is according to the 2013 annual report presented by Transparency International this week.

The main findings of the 'Global Corruption Barometer, 2013' survey:

61 out of 100 Hungarians think that corruption has increased in the past two years

Hungarians believe that political parties are the most corrupt –the picture is the same in other European countries as well as worldwide

8 out of 10 Hungarians think that the government’s actions are partly or fully influenced by the interests of particular business circles

70 percent of Hungarians would not report a case of corruption - this is an exceptionally high percentage in Europe

Hungary is corrupt, and the situation has only worsened in the past few years – this is what the majority of Hungarians think about our country. Most of them is bothered by pervasive corruption, but fewer and fewer are willing to take action against it – diagnoses the Global Corruption Barometer, Transparency International’s most recent survey.

Only the government, the parties, and a few private companies benefit
