Only 18 parliamentary deputies disclose their assets

Only 18 deputies in Parliament have declared their assets in a campaign initiated by Transparency International (TI), a nongovernmental organization that monitors and publicizes political corruption.
The campaign, called and”Open Deputies,and” which aims to make politics transparent and accountable, was conducted by 17 nongovernmental organizations under the guidance of TI.
Initiated on Thursday, the campaign urges politicians to declare their assets regularly in order to maintain a certain level of accountability among the public administration and politicians.
Ten deputies from the Peoplesand’ Democratic Party (HDP) and eight from the Republican Peopleand’s Party (CHP) were the only members of Parliament to declare their assets. As of Friday, no deputies from the ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party) or the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) have declared their assets.
CHP leader Kemal Kiliandcdaroilu and HDP Co-chair Figen Yanduksekdai were among those who declared their assets.
HDP Co-chair Selahattin Demirtai had previously announced his assets but has not joined the campaign yet.
TI asks deputies to sign a and”contract of honesty,and” promising they will not use their position for the benefit of themselves or those close to them. Only three deputies, all from the CHP, have signed the contract so far, with andOzcan Purandcu being the first.
Turks can follow the campaign on the website acikvekil.seffaflik.org and they can also send an online invite to deputies through Twitter to urge them to join.
According to TI, Turkeyand’s perceived corruption level worsened more than any other country in a global perceived corruption index for 2014, dropping by five points to 45 on a scale of 100. The country currently ranks 64th out of 175 countries on the 2014 Corruption Perceptions Index.
