The report said 23.3 per cent of the people say that the main reason for the rise in inflation and unemployment is corruption while 9.6 per cent think that the interference of politicians in the government is the main reason.

More than 16 per cent of citizens are of the opinion that the reason for the non-implementation of policies is inflation and corruption while 51.9 per cent of people say poor accountability is the main cause of corruption.

According to 29.3 per cent of people, corruption is due to the lust of the powerful class while 18.8 per cent cited low wages as the main cause of corruption.
