Mexico has been declared the number one most corrupt nation in the OECD group of countries by the World Economic Forum.

The findings are based on a WEF survey of 15,000 business leaders from 141 economies between February and June 2016.

The full list of OECD nations topping the corruption charts are Slovenia (11), Poland (10), Republic of South Korea (9), Latvia (8), Spain (7), Czech Republic (6), Greece (5), Hungary (4), Italy (3), Slovakia (2), and Mexico (1).

According to the study, organised crime, bribery scandals, and media manipulation have greatly undermined the country’s accountability.
