Campaign against political corruption

OVER 100,000 people have signed a campaign against political corruption.

The Spanish arm of pressure group AVAAZ, instigated the drive as it emerged that eight out of 10 Spaniards believe their politicians are corrupt.

The group, meaning ‘voice’, claims hundreds of ‘dirty’ candidates must be removed from running for local and regional elections in May.

The petition demands that anyone who has been previously indicted for corruption related charges should not be allowed to stand.

A report showed that 700 judicial investigations into bribery and corruption were reported in 2010.
