Rai Manzoor Nasir, Secretary of the Punjab Cooperative Board for Liquidation, has been named Pakistan’s first ‘Integrity Idol’, winning 7,000 out of 20,000 votes cast in a competition run by the American NGO Accountability Lab.

Nasir has clamped down on corruption in the land registry, firing 30 officials, and making himself directly available (on his land and cell phone, as well as in person at mosques and other public places) to anyone offered a bribe.

The competition started in Nepal in 2015, where the first winner was District Education Officer Gyan Mani Nepal. He had also offered school pupils his personal phone number, asking them to text him if their teachers failed to appear for work.
