Published:  |  Modified:

Malaysia has slid one notch down the Transparency International Corruption Perception Index (CPI) to share the 55th spot with Croatia in 2016.

According to Transparency International-Malaysia (TI-M), Malaysia's CPI score dropped from 50 to 49 on a scale of 0-100, with 100 being perceived to be very clean and 0 being perceived as highly corrupt.

The CPI measures perception of corruption in 176 countries.

"This sad showing by Malaysia needs to be urgently addressed," TI-M president Akhbar Satar said today.
