Congressmen are divided almost down the middle when it comes to their financial accountability

8 March 2018

According to a study by the International Institute on Anticorruption Studies, Congress representatives are divided almost down the middle when it comes to their financial accountability.

The study, carried out by the International Institute on Anticorruption Studies during the first week of March found that only 68% of a total of 98 Senators [1] responded to requests for information related to the management of their work in Congress.

 A similar trend was detected in the Chamber, where only 66% of Representatives replied.

On a scale of -26 to 26, where zero (0) represents the minimum information that is expected provided, -26 represents extreme

disappointment with the expected information and +26 the proactive delivery of information in addition to the expected. The average score of the evaluated Senators was -6.19 and -2.96 in the Chamber.

​This means that both Senators and representatives to the Chamber tend to deliver less information than any citizen expects to know about their activities.
