DR ranks poorly in electoral integrity

The Dominican Republic is ranked only higher than Haiti in the Electoral Integrity Project’s Perceptions of Electoral Integrity database that compares 153 countries holding 213 elections from 1 July 2012 to 30 June 2016. Released in August 2016, the independent academic study is directed by Pippa Norris and its research team is based at the University of Sydney and Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.

The study provides independent assessments utilizing a rolling design where experts assess the quality of national elections one month after the close of the polls.

Results in the Americas are:
Costa Rica 81, Uruguay 75, Canada 75, Brazil 67, Chile 66, Grenada 66, Jamaica 66, Argentina 64, Barbados 63, United States 62, Peru 62, Panama 60, Colombia 60, Mexico 57, Cuba 56, Bolivia 55, Ecuador 55, Paraguay 55, El Salvador 54, Belize 53, Guyana 53, Suriname 50, Guatemala 48, Venezuela 45, Honduras 45, Dominican Republic 44 and Haiti 28.
