Politicians to get an eight-percent pay rise


Politicians can expect a pay rise by around eight percent next year. This is due to the fact that the average wage in the non-business sector, on which the parliamentarian’s salary is base, has increased as well. Monthly wage of a senator could rise next year from current 65,000 crowns to 71,000, while the deputies could get around 66,000 crowns a month. The monthly wage of the president is expected to increase by more than 17,000 to 236,000.
