Leading civil society organizations published the anti-corruption agenda for candidates who run for the President of Ukraine.
Candidates are called on to publicly state their vision of overcoming key problems of the state anti-corruption policy.
— Complete loss of public confidence in the leadership of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office.
— Failure of management of the National Agency on Corruption Prevention to ensure fulfillment of institution’s functions.
— Permanent attacks of the political elite on the National Anti-Corruption Bureau.
— Transformation of the part of the Security Service of Ukraine into the tool and the provider of corruption.
“There are no doubts that the list of above-mentioned problems is not full. However, absence of clear position among candidates regarding them indicate about misunderstanding of key challenges in the sphere of fighting against corruption”, says the document.
For their part, civil society organizations are ready to take part in discussing these problems with presidential candidates.
We should recall that Ukrainian voters stated corruption as one of three biggest problems in Ukraine. The greatest threat, in their opinion, is grand political corruption, according to more than 90% of Ukrainians.
Ukrainians lay the greatest responsibility for fighting against corruption upon the President (63%) and the Verkhovna Rada (42%). 80% are convinced that the main reason of corruption is lack of proper punishment for it.
We call on other organizations to support the anti-corruption agenda.
