Macau, China, 10 Jun – Some 73.5 percent of the respondents of a survey commissioned by the Commission Against Corruption (CCAC) said they believed that illegalities and irregularities in the public administration were “very common” or “common” according to he Macao Post Daily.

The findings of the annual survey were released by the CCAC Tuesday. The survey was conducted by the Macau Polytechnic Institute (IPM) in April, comprising 1,071 respondents.

Last year, 75.4 percent of the respondents said they thought that illegalities and irregularities in the public administration were “very common” or “common.” In 2005, the percentage stood at “just” 41.2 percent.

Some 7.9 percent of the respondents said they or their family members had been confronted with corruption cases, as against 8.4 percent last year and six percent in 2005.

About 86.3 percent of the respondents said they “fully support” or “support” the work of the CCAC, compared with 84 percent last year and 91 percent in 2005.

About 68 percent said they would not tolerate corruption, an increase from last year. However, the CCAC announcement on the survey failed to quantify the increase.

According with the paper the announcement also said that the “large majority of the population” supported the CCAC’s plan to extend its investigative powers from the public to the private sector.

The Macau Post Dailuy also said that the announcement did not give an exact figure to back up the claim.
