Political will can be demonstrated with comprehensive investment in improving the integrity of institutions. That investment implies investing in people and resources of the institutions, but at the same time in enabling management staff who will be able to run the institutions independently. Central responsibility for this lies with the Government and the Parliament. The Government should find a way to abandon appointments based on political party affiliation and enable a quality process of defining future anti-corruption goals and policies. It is the duty of the Parliament to protect the institutions by providing them with resources and quality laws by which they should act. However, probably most importantly, in return, the Parliament should be a continuous corrector, through supervision, of the work of those institution, setting out clear objectives and expectations for success in the fight against corruption.
