E-government requires more attention from researchers to investigate the factors that predict the success of such initiative.

Two measures used for transparency: the corruption perception index (CPI) and the open budget index (OBI) and were regressed to see their prediction power for e-government readiness index (EGRI).

Data analysis, discussion, conclusion, and future work are depicted at the end of this work.
