The level of good governance in the country cannot be measured arithmetically. What should I consider the base level of good governance and what should be the optimum level?
However, there are some indicators.
If you base it on whether the citizens are not getting the services they are supposed to get, then I think there is a significant lack of good governance. The extent to which civil rights, human rights, and the provisions that every citizen should get equal rights are effective can also be taken into consideration.
The extent to which legal and constitutional rights of the people are being implemented also needs to be considered in the review of good governance.
The reasons behind the lack of good governance in Bangladesh are not unknown to anyone. The main reasons are the lack of political commitment and political interference.
Those responsible for establishing good governance are involved in corruption – this is also a big reason. At the same time, not bringing corrupt people to justice and not setting an example of justice are also obstacles to good governance.
Where Bangladesh will be on the good governance index in the next 10 years cannot be said right now. It can take either a positive or a negative turn.
There is no doubt that the indicator of good governance will move towards a positive direction if we can create a corruption-free society, state, and administration by continuing anti-corruption drives and taking effective measures to prevent graft, protect civil and human rights, and provide economic security.
In this regard, I will say it again – political commitment is the most important factor.
