SDSM Proposes Limiting of Officials’ Salaries

In Parliament, SDSM has proposed for salaries of officials to be limited instead of increasing according to the average salary increase. If the changes to six laws that the party filed on Tuesday are not adopted, the salary of over 1,000 officials will increase by 15.3%.

As SDSM MP Martin Kostovski explained, that’s the only constitutional solution to the issue. Though VMRO-DPMNE supports, in principle, the idea, it said it would present its position once it saw the text.

The salaries of officials drastically rose last year as a result of the Constitutional Court’s decision to annul the base for calculations.
