Disclosure of influence on political decisions
PIRATES call for the disclosure of the influence of interest groups and lobbyists on political decisions to protect the democratic process and to make the basis of decisions transparent.
Whistle-blower Protection Law
PIRATES advocate for general and comprehensive legislation to protect persons who expose issues that are in the public interest, such as cases of corruption, insider trading, or ethics or human rights violations (“whistle-blowers”).
Transparency of the Public Sector
The public sector, including private entities carrying out work on behalf of a public body, must be transparent. PIRATES believe that it is a fundamental right of citizens to inspect, without the need for any specific justification, all contracts or financial benefits related to the delivery of public sector or government projects and services.
