  5. Responsiveness: Government institutions and officials are responsive to the needs, concerns, and aspirations of the public. They take timely and appropriate actions to address them.
  6. Efficiency and Effectiveness: Public resources are utilized efficiently, and government services are delivered effectively to meet the needs of the citizens.
  7. Equity and Inclusiveness: Policies and practices are designed to promote social equity, inclusiveness, and non-discrimination. All individuals and groups have equal opportunities and access to resources and services.
  8. Integrity: Ethical behavior, honesty, and transparency are upheld in the actions and conduct of government officials and institutions.
