The Parliamentary Group of the Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK), has submitted today the request for motion of the Prime Minister of Kosovo, Ramush Haradinaj, with regards to the Decision of the government, number 04/20, dated 21.12.2017, on increase of salaries for the governing cabinet.
“Such decision is extremely harmful, not analyzed and creates a major discrepancy between the incomes of the citizens, incomes of the other employees in the public sector and the officials of the governing cabinet. With this decision, the difference between the salaries of the governing cabinet and a civil servant increase from 1 with 4 to 1 with eight. This discrepancy is much bigger for those who receive pensions or social welfare, or the salary of those working in the private sector,” notes LDK’s press release.
“Therefore, based on the abovementioned, MPs of the LDK Parliamentary Group, through this motion, will request from the Prime Minister immediate annulment of the illegal decision for salary increase to the governing cabinet as well as bringing for approval at the Assembly, in the shortest possible period of time, the Law on the salaries for the Public Sector,” concludes the communique.
