Transparency International Georgia, a local watchdog, has issued a comprehensive report providing a thorough evaluation of country’s anti-corruption efficacy, and highlighting key shortcomings in different branches of government.

The Georgian National System Integrity Assessment, released on June 26, is based on qualitative research carried out in accordance with a set of criteria and indicators gauging independence, transparency, accountability and integrity of state and non-state institutions – among others the executive, the Parliament, the judiciary, law enforcement agencies, civil society and media.

TI Georgia found that out of 12 institutions assessed in the frame of the study, only three – Public Defender’s Office, the State Audit Office, and the Electoral Administration – are properly equipped to hedge against the risks of corruption.
