In the current trend, where reality shows are filled with gossips and celebrity talks, Nepal’s Integrity Idol makes a difference.
This show gathers nominations from citizens across countries by hosting public forums and discussions on the need for public officials with integrity.
Then the independent panelists of respective countries finalize the list, and the finalists are filmed and their episodes are shown on national television and played on the radio for a week. The winner of each country will be crowned in a national ceremony in the capital.
Integrity Idol, which began in Nepal in 2014, has expanded its presence to Liberia (in 2015) and now includes Pakistan and Mali.
