      Watchdog Group: Put Anti-Corruption in Party Platforms

      The Ometz government watchdog group is calling on all heads of parties to include the fight against corruption in their party’s platform. “As you know, the problem of personal corruption among some of those in public office, on both the national and municipal levels, is extremely upsetting to citizens, who look to elected officials to set  a personal example,” write Ometz head Aryeh Avneri, explaining his appeal.

      If parties choose to add a call to fight corruption in their platform, “the Ometz movement is prepared to offer your party any help necessary, including providing relevant material,” he added.
