A recent survey conducted by Transparency International Turkey (TI Turkey) has shown 67 percent of the population in Turkey believes that corruption has increased in the country over the last two years and that 54 percent of people think it will continue to increase in the next two years.
According to the survey, which polled 2,000 individuals between Feb. 25 and Mar. 19, 2015, only 18 percent of respondents said corruption has decreased in the past two years and 15 percent thought it remained at the same level. Titled “Corruption in Turkey: Why, How and Where?” the report was released on Monday with a 95 percent confidence level.
While only 26 percent of potential Justice and Development Party (AK Party) voters considered the corruption level to have surged in the last two years, the same ratio was recorded as 88 percent for the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) and the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), and stood at 80 percent for the People’s Democratic Party (HDP).
