The salaries for the 300 MPs remain ‘untouchable” from the austerity cuts:
PM and Parliament Speaker a decrease of 1,872 euro per month.
Deputy PM and Main Opposition leader a decrease of 1,404 euro per month.
Ministers and deputy/alternate Ministers a decrease of 935 euro if they are also MPS and a decrease of 468 euro, if they are not.
A further decision on wages cuts to General Secretaries is expected too.
With these cuts the debt-ridden government expects to save 9-10 million euro per year.
The Finance Ministry decided also to proceed to cuts of 10-25% the state pays for rent for public buildings.
PS I didn’t know we had a deputy prime minister… the last two in Papandreou & Papademos governments were Venizelos & Pangalos, but Samaras government had not appointed any. Or it has???
