Pakistani legislators want liquor ban to be lifted

Islamabad: Pakistan seems to be racing to become one of the most corrupt countries in the world, a media report said Sunday.

Pakistan surpassed several corrupt nations in a global watchlist last year. A report on corruption in Pakistan is to be released by Transparency International Tuesday.

Sources in the World Bank and Asian Development Bank, which help prepare the Transparency International report, told The News that there has been a huge increase in corruption in Pakistan in the past 12 months.

One source said: "It seems the country (Pakistan) is fast racing to become number one on the list of the most corrupt nations."

The 2009 report of the Transparency International's Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) 2009 showed 2.4 as Pakistan's score. Out of 180 countries, Pakistan was ranked 42 in the list of most corrupt nations.

International bodies have been advising Pakistan that it has to enforce good governance and transparent administration to counter corruption.
