Transparency International has said that Iraq maintained its position in the global Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI).
In the latest annual list, Libya was in 8th-last position, a ranking it shared last year with Haiti, which has improved its position by two places.
From at total of 176 countries, Iraq came in at number 169.
This result puts it ahead of countries such as Myanmar, Sudan, and Somalia (which came last), and just behind Chad, Haiti, and Venuzuela.
Denmark, Finland and New Zealand shared first place.
The Corruption Perceptions Index is a composite index, drawing on 13 different expert and business surveys.
