No democratic government can survive without accountability and the basic postulate of accountability is that the people should have information about the functioning of the government. The citizens’ right to know the facts about the administration of the country thus, is one of the pillars of a democratic state and that is why the demand for openness in the government is increasingly growing in different parts of the world.
