The state would also save on the multi-faceted flat-rate compensation of politicians in the slower wage growth of constitutional actors.
Prague – MEPs should, according to the head of the movement and Prime Minister Andrei Babiš, support the pirates' proposal so that the House, in view of the possible delay, would act alongside raising pensions and slowing the growth of salaries of constitutional actors. Because it is not an extraordinary meeting but a meeting that is convened by the Chamber of Deputies, it is possible to place extra points on the agenda.
The Pirates would have a total of 78 votes, with a total of 100 votes cast. The delay in salary increases is also supported by the Freedom and Direct Democracy movement. Babiš on Wednesday told reporters on his arrival at the meeting that the support of the appointment of the point was requested by Jaroslav Faltýn, the head of the House of Commons.
The Prime Minister said it was a proposal from the previous one-color government YES. "My government has suggested this because salaries do not grow so fast, we have inherited it, as a parliamentary club, we support it, and another salary increase is there," he said. He also warned that MPs would vote against each other by delaying their own wage growth. "Voting for their own income can be unusual for them, but it is," he said, assuming he would convince his club.
Pirate deputy Mikuláš Ferjenčík said last week that the pirates will submit the proposal to reach the legislative process by the end of the year. "If that does not happen, it will increase by 20 percent, which we regard as total shame and we do not want to have anything to do with it," he said.
To calculate the salaries of politicians, the basis on which they are based is crucial. For this year, the base was counted as 2.5 times the average wage in the non-business sphere, with an upward trend since 2015. Previously, the salaries of politicians were frozen and increased. The following year and in the following years the coefficient should be 2.75 in accordance with current legislation. The Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs has proposed to remain 2.5 this year.
The state would also save on the multi-faceted flat-rate compensation of politicians, who also deviate from wages, with the slower growth of the salaries of constitutional actors.
