On March 16, 2018, the Institute for Democracy and Mediation (IDM) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) presented the findings of the "Trust in Governance 2017" survey, conducted in November 2017. This survey was conducted for the 5th year in a row.
From reporting this survey, it was concluded that despite the perception of citizens for public institutions, as corrupt, remains high, there is an improvement year-on-year.
For 2017, the findings show that the public institutions that enjoy the greatest trust are: Armed Forces (63%), Public Education Institutions (63%), Public Health Institutions (53%) and State Police (53%). Public Prosecution (22%), Courts (21%) and Political Parties (21%) appear to be the least trusted institutions. In relation to other national institutions, Religious Institutions (76%), Civil Society Organizations (57%) and Media (54%) are the most trusted. The Supreme State Audit has asked the organizers that in the years to come, ALSAI should be included in the list of institutions upon which this perception is collected.
However, it is very important to note that ALSAI, in this study, is the most trusted institution when it comes to exercising accountability over the government. The table below for illustration. Source: "IDM Albania"
The Supreme State Audit as an independent constitutional institution is entirely dedicated to the fight against corruption and misuse of public money. ALSAI presents every year in its annual analysis, the achievements in this fight. ALSAI, wants to thank all the citizens who have responded to this questionnaire. In the spirit of INTOSAI guidance, ISSAI 12, ALSAI is constantly engaged "... to bring about change in the lives of citizens".
