In Focus: Merdeka Center - Corruption Perception survey 2014

Corruption is a complex social, political and economic phenomenon that affects all countries, undermines democratic institutions, slows economic development and contributes to governmental instability.

Corruption attacks the foundation of democratic institutions by distorting electoral processes, perverting the rule of law and creating bureaucratic quagmires whose only reason for existing is the solicitation of bribes.

Economic development is stunted because foreign direct investment is discouraged and small businesses within the country often find it impossible to overcome the "start-up costs" required because of corruption.

Malaysia, as we know, is no stranger to corruption. We’ve all heard about it, some of us read about it on an almost daily basis - and some people might even turn a blind eye to it.

The Merdeka Center however, conducted a survey - "Perception towards Corruption 2014 Peninsular Malaysia Voter Survey 2014"

On International Anti-Corruption day 2014 we had in the studio with us Seng Keat, the Merdeka Center research manager, and he talked us through the findings from this year's results. Download the full report here.
