Parties, customs and justice are seen as the most corrupt institutions in Romania, according to Global Corruption Indicator published yesterday by Transparency International Romania.
According to an opinion poll made by Gallup International, from a scale from 1 to 5, political parties are seen worldwide as the most corrupt institutions (4.0), the parliament has 3.7, police are third with 3.6 and tax authorities get 3.6.
In Romania, political parties get 4.2, public administration and customs also get 4.2, while justice comes in third with 4.1.
For Romanians, inflation and unemployment are more important than high level corruption.
The report also says Romanians give more bribes than people in other countries.
A quarter of Romanians said they gave bribes during the last year, compared to 10 percent worldwide.
Still, compared to expectations for the next three years in fight against corruption, Romanians are more optimistic than people in other countries.
26 percent of the Romanians say corruption will increase, 32 percent said it will remain at the same level, while 17 percent expect a drop in corruption.
Transparency International noticed corruption also remains a serious problem in many of the east-European countries who joined EU in May.
The study was made from a sample of 50,000 people from 64 countries, during June-September 2004.
Cameroon is top of the list, as 52 percent of its population was involved in corruption.
The second most corrupt state is Kenya, with 36 percent of the population having admitted to corrupt practices.
The report was made public yesterday, on the International Day for Fighting Corruption.
