Georgia has a score of 55 points, which is a one point decrease compared to the previous year, in the Transparency International's 2021 Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI).
The country maintains the 45th place among 180 countries included in the ranking and a leading position in the Eastern Europe and Central Asia region.
Transparency International Georgia says that the country’s score has not improved significantly since 2012.
It says that the problems and challenges that exist and create an ‘ ideal environment’ for corruption to deepen are as follows:
Unhealthy concentration of power in the hands of the ruling party.
Weakening of the democratic system of checks and balances
Weak parliamentary oversight.
High level corruption
Stalled anti-corruption reform
