Explanation

The answer revolves around understanding the clue, “aghast,” as well as the fact that the politician wants public attention to wane (reduce). Openness and transparency are an incorrect pair.

While perhaps a policy of openness might have prevented the politician’s troubles in the first place, there is no indication from the sentence that giving more information would cause public interest to decrease.

Hence silence, quietus are best fit!
