Pakistan ranks 140th among most corrupt countries

Corruption index dropped to lowest of 27 after a decade during Imran Khan's tenure

The recent Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) on Tuesday revealed that Pakistan ranked 140th in the list of most corrupt countries in world, with a surprising drop in country’s index to the lowest of 27 points out of 100 after a decade.

The CPI ranked 180 countries and territories around the world by their perceived levels of public sector corruption. The results are given on a scale of 0 (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean).

According to the index, Pakistan ranks 140 on the list of being the world’s most corrupt nations.

But surprisingly, Pakistan has seen a persistent increase in corruption during the tenure of former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan.

During Imran’s regime, the corruption score declined from 33 to 27, the lowest after a decade.

While a similar corruption index of 27 was recorded during Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) regime in 2012.
