The foremost purpose of this article is to investigate the effect of electronic-government (e-government) on public trust and the moderating impact of corruption on this relationship. The data was obtained through a structural questionnaire involving 800 Pakistani citizens at the local level. The true response rate was 58.3%. The data was analyzed using confirmatory factor analysis, multiple regression and stepwise hierarchal regression. The results showed there is an empirically significant association among e-government practices and public trust in local self-government and a negative moderating role of corruption. The findings suggest that e-government can develop a procedure-based trust by advancing connections with people and their insights of responsiveness. The individuals’ viewpoints about the state, including trust, are fundamental concerns for the governance and administrative system. Testing these above associations via a moderation technique is a novel process which contributed to the current study on e-government. View Full-Text
