Israel remains the absolute regional leader in good governance, on behalf of its judicial independence, freedom of the press and low administrative burden. The already high demand for good governance from the public has been on the rise due to development of e-government and e-participation, with the highest number of e-citizens in the region. More transparency related to public spending and more public specifications on what constitutes integrity of the public office would build more trust and shelter the country from the instrumentalization of integrity for political ends.
