Political transparency

Political transparency refers to the honesty, ethics and responsibility that governments and public entities must have in order to make citizens aware of the steps and activities in which economic investments of social importance are made.

For this reason, political transparency is even related to economic, social and legal issues. On the other hand, political transparency not only covers the public political sphere, it also includes private institutions.

Political transparency seeks to generate a relationship of trust and security with citizens in order to publicize all those activities, negotiations, budgets and access to information that is of a public nature and interest.

However, there are many cases in which such transparency does not exist and this is related to acts of corruption, misappropriation of assets, lack of information, loss of money, unfinished works, among others.

For example, in Mexico political transparency has a lot of value, for this reason the government created various platforms in which many of the information of citizen interest are published, in order to generate greater confidence about the political management that is carried out.
