MEXICO (INEGI) – The cost to the country from lousy government practices increases by 64% versus 2017; security authorities are the main focus of corruption

Corruption during 2019, already under the mandate of Andrés Manuel López Obrador, has increased its incidence, prevalence, and cost, as reported yesterday by the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (Inegi).

Despite the official discourse, where the president has stated that there is no longer any corruption in the country, the National Survey of Government Quality and Impact shows that during 2019 it grew compared to the last exercise carried out in 2017.

“During 2019, the perception of the frequency of corruption acts in government institutions was reduced, going from 91.1% in 2017, to 87% in 2019. However, the prevalence rate of corruption increased,” said Inegi this year.
