What would make this commitment better?
In relation to 4.1 – Confidence in the electoral system and political parties, we suggest that in order to fully advance the OGP values of accountability, transparency and access to information the issue of eligibility and disqualification of candidates for elections be more defined. Clarity regarding bankruptcy, conviction and charges definitions is needed so as the high standards of integrity that the community and genuine candidates aspire to is easily understood and promoted.John Hyde Chair, GOPAC Oceania Region, Secretary, GOPAC (Global Organisation of Parliamentarians Against Corruption) Australia www.facebook.com/gopacoceania http://www.gopacnetwork.org/
