No Improvement in Libya's Transparency Ranking

By John Lee.

Transparency International has said that Libya's ranking has remained static in its global Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI).

From at total of 167 countries, Libya came in at number 161, tying with Iraq; last year’s position was 161 out of 175 countries.

This result puts it ahead of countries such as Afghanistan, North Korea, and Somalia (which came last, again), and just behind Venezuela, Guinea-Bissau, and Haiti.

Denmark came first, again, followed by Finland, Sweden and New Zealand.

The Corruption Perceptions Index is a composite index, drawing on corruption-related data collected by a variety of reputable institutions.
