The Executive authority divided into centralization and decentralization. 2- Ensuring judiciarys independence and developing its capability , effectiveness and systematic efficiency.

3-Giving controlling corruption high priority in the government's blueprint that used to be submitted to the parliament for obtaining confidence .

4-Abolishment each policy begets an artificial gap between demand and supply as the disadvantages of such policy create rooms for the black market , brokers , brokerage and jobbery.

5-Eradicating the corruption sources through tackling the reasons which usually bring about corruption.

4- Giving up the government subsidies that used to be extended to some commodities such as wheat , sugar and fuels because those subsidies were often one of the factors that caused corruption.
5- As a result of abrogatting the supply function and liberalizing the trade and opening the markets , restrictions on prices are lifted and what was known as administrative prices are concealed.

6- Putting an end to the multi-exchange rates of the dollar that were dominant ; as there were several rates of the US dollar according to the kind of the imported commodity. This measure helped preventing the jobbers ,who used to exploit that situation for their own benefits from going on that ill-practices.
