Some experts of International process Transparecy for Spanish 10% slippage over the past 4 years with the financial crisis and the consequent austerity measures. The funny thing is, for example, Portugal and Greece were affected by the same problems and were even under the financial rescue "troika" and improved the respective classification.

The index orders the countries on a scale from 0 to 100 points; the lower the score the highest will be the lack of corruption in the respective country.

The EU and Western Europe had the best regional average (67), while sub-Saharan Africa recorded the worst (33).

The Greece registered the best nresultado between the "28", giving a jump of 27.78 per 100, jumping of 36 points, in 2012, to 46 last year. This could suggest that the crisis will not have had the same negative effects recorded in Spain.

Carl Dolan that should fit better the Greek case: "as a rule, Greece and EU Member State the worst in our lack of corruption index, so this is good news, it's getting better, but we must point out that the Greeks started from a very low position and still have a long way to go."

"In contrast with Spain, what we are seeing in Greece is a serious attempt [Hellenistic] Parties solve the problem of corruption. There have been many anti-corruption investigations, in particular in the defence sector, "the Director of the coalition.
