Its notable on what have been presented from activities and governmental statements
related to anti-corruption, that it was "more intense" this month than ever before, the
main reason for this may be the political and media hype that accompanied the
disclosure of a corruption scandal of the Agriculture Ministry, then changing the prime
minister and a number of his ministers, therefore a large number of officials have
tendency to announce positions seemed militant towards corruption within their sectors.
But at the same time, the legislative solutions still "absent" from the scene, despite its
strong political positions, the most notably was the acceptance of the government
resignation, but the state did not intervene during the month of September by issuing
laws or decisions that can deal with the widespread corruption phenomenon in Egypt.
Moreover, the activities organized by a number of organizations and government bodies
and all ostensibly aims to educate and rehabilitate their staff to engage in anti-corruption
4P.

efforts, but these activities practically, lacks coherence, systematic and proper planning,
allowing to measure impact and payback on the behaviors and practices of staff within
those bodies, subsequently.
