header1 Issues of concern

  • Corruption is pervasive, and anticorruption institutions are subject to political interference.
  • The government generally does not release accurate information about public expenditures, procurement processes, or officials’ assets.
  • In some areas, local leaders, politicians, and candidate agents control balloting processes and have reportedly completed ballot papers in bulk—a form of “assisted voting" that effectively denies citizens the right to vote.
