Survey Finds Widespread Corruption Concerns


The findings of a survey conducted in March 2024 by the Centre for Migration Identity and Rights Studies (CMIRS), with 500 participants, have been revealed, Kibris Postasi reports.

The survey revealed that the vast majority – nine out of ten respondents, perceive corruption and injustice as pervasive in the nation. However, those who maintain hope for the restoration of justice constitute a minority.

CMIRS’s survey highlighted the intricate interaction between sociological behaviour rooted in bribery and corruption and the societal values, lifestyles, and organisational patterns. It underscored the concerning trend of creating fertile ground for corruption amidst deteriorating socio-economic conditions, legal loopholes, and an environment characterised by uninformed electorate.

Participants were also asked additional questions. A mere quarter of respondents felt they had any influence over national decisions. A staggering 80.20% expressed belief in the widespread prevalence of injustice, while 86% perceived rampant partisanship. Moreover, an overwhelming 90.6% of participants identified corruption as widespread, with 82.4% recognising bribery as being all pervasive in the country.

In terms of perceived corruption, the TRNC ranked 140th among 180 countries, sharing the same score with Cameroon.
