The President’s Office has conducted a programme on Anti-Corruption and Good Governance for those serving in elected and political positions.

The sessions commenced on Sunday at the National Art Gallery and will draw to a close on Monday.

This programme is part of President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih's first '100-day' pledges of his administration.

According to Transparency International (TI)'s 2018 Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI), Maldives was rated 124 out of 180 countries with a total score of 31.

"The 2018 CPI score for the Maldives is a stark reminder of the eroding democratic institutions and the unchecked level of grand corruption. Over the past five years, the fundamental freedoms and rights in Maldives has gradually deteriorated, paving a smooth path for unchecked corruption and abuse of power", said TI's local chapter, Transparency Maldives (TM).
