2006 Corruption Perceptions Survey

Anoush Armenia points to the clear link there is between the upcoming elecitons and curbing corruption in the country, in her discussion of the recent report by the Transparency International on the state of corruption perception in Armenia.

SO, if everyone realizes that the existing corrupt system is bad, and that free and fair elections is a way to improve the situation, then why does it seem like such an uphill battle to convince people to get out and vote this Spring. To sign up to become election observers. To protest when their rights to dissent are put into jeopardy. RIGHT NOW is the perfect opportunity for citizens of Armenia to do something.
