Transparency International has ranked Pakistan 120 out of 180 countries on the Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) 2019.

As per details, Transparency International, an international non-governmental organization based in Berlin  released a report on global corruption.

CPI uses a scale of 0 to 100 to rank nations, where 0 is highly corrupt and 100 is very clean.

The score of Pakistan – 32/100 – well below the CPI average of 43 for the year 2019.

However, TI said that more than two thirds of the countries on the list scored below 50 on the index this year.

The Berlin-based non-profit releases the index every year.

It ranks 180 countries and territories through their perceived levels of public sector corruption.

Pakistan ranked at the 117th place for the years 2017 and 2018.

The country scored 32/100 on the CPI in 2018 and 32/100 in 2017.

Although the score of Pakistan on the index has not changed at all compared to the past year, the changes in the CPI score of other countries on the list resulted in Pakistan falling down the ranking.
