Study: S. Korea Ranks 6th in Electoral Integrity

An international study finds that South Korea’s 2012 presidential election was relatively fair compared to other countries. 

Experts from Harvard University and the University of Sydney conducted the independent academic study called the Electoral Integrity Project.
 
South Korea ranked sixth out of 66 countries in electoral integrity. The nation had a reading on the study's Perception of Electoral Integrity (PEI) index of 81-point-two out of 100.
 
The annual report evaluated 73 parliamentary and presidential contests in 66 countries worldwide between July 1st of 2012 and December 31st of 2013. The survey asked domestic and international experts to monitor the quality of such elections based on 49 indicators.
 
South Korea’s elections received high scores in ballot count, voter registration and voting process. But Korea scored lower in media coverage, election law and election funds.
 
Norway had the highest score in the study followed by Germany and the Netherlands.
 
The report said electoral integrity is strengthened by democracy and economic development, adding countries such as Norway, Germany and the Netherlands have firm democratic practices and a strong civic culture.
