Georgia assessed as first country in region in terms of open governance
18:50 27-03-2015
Georgia assessed as first country in region in terms of open governance Georgia has been ranked first of 13 countries in Eastern Europe and Central Asia region in terms of open governance, - says a report published by international organization The World Justice Project.

In the Open Government Index 2015 report Georgia achieved a score of 0.61, outperforming Slovenia, Macedonia, Greece and Croatia. The highest score (0.81) went to Sweden, New Zealand and Norway.

Scores ranged from 0 to 1.

Georgia’s result was based on answers from 1,000 respondents in Tbilisi, Batumi and Kutaisi. The WJP research covered 102 countries in total.

An open government – a government that shares information, empowers people with tools to hold the government accountable, and fosters citizen participation in public policy deliberations – is a necessary component of a system of government founded on the rule of law.

The WJP Open Government Index 2015 scored countries on the basis of four dimensions of government openness: (1) publicized laws and government data, (2) right to information, (3) civic participation, and (4) complaint mechanisms.

Georgia received its highest score in terms of right to information. In this category Georgia occupied 16th place in the world with a score of 0.70.

The country’s lowest score, 0.51, was for the publicizing laws and government data category. In this group, Georgia took fourth place in the region and 36th in the world.

In terms of complaint mechanisms, Georgia achieved 0.57, taking it to fourth place in the region and 48th in the world.

According to Georgian citizens, the scale of the information published by the Government was "very high, quality and reliable” and only 39 percent thought the Government provided them with "enough information”.

Twenty-one percent knew about the right to information in Georgia. The number of people who had ever accessed public information was only 8%.

Despite the majority of people (94 percent) believing the Government provided information very frequently, the information delivery took time, respondents said. Only 59% of required public information was provided in seven days. According to the research, it takes from one week to one month for the Government to provide the required information.
