North Macedonia: Gov’t clarifies that ministers parallelly serving as MPs only receive one salary

Responding to the remarks by the State Committee for the Prevention of Corruption and Conflict of Interest regarding members of the government who are elected MPs receiving two salaries, the government informed that the Prime Minister and the Ministers who were elected MPs in the last elections receive only the salary for their services to the government for as long as they are committed to the government, and not by the assembly.

The Government continues to strongly support the transparent and accountable work of all institutions in the fight against corruption and the prevention of conflicts of interest, and will confirm any discussion in this direction based on facts and arguments, the Government Press Office announced. /ibna
