Question for written answer E-000941/2020
to the Commission
Rule 138
Dominique Bilde (ID)

In the latest survey by Transparency International on perceptions of corruption, Bosnia and Herzegovina has lost six points since 2012, now scoring 36, due in particular to election irregularities, threats to voters and misuse of public funds [1] .

Albania, with a score of 35 points, has fallen 23 places in three years. Transparency International reports that corruption is endemic, ranging from fraud at the highest level of government to everyday fraud, which hampers access to basic public services, such as health care or education [2] . Moreover, Albania is said to be the most corrupt country among the EU Member States and the candidate countries for accession, alongside North Macedonia.
