Dombrovskis to propose reducing ministers' salaries by 20%


By Editor . 18.03.2009

Prime Minister Valdis Dombrovskis has proposed to reduce his salary and the salaries of government ministers by 20 percent.

Dombrovskis told this to members of the press after government meeting informs LETA.
This offer has been proposed to coalition partners, but Dombrovskis is skeptical whether an agreement on the reduction of ministers' salaries will be reached, because the previous government was not able to come to a similar agreement. The prime minister also said that, when reviewing budget cuts, the wages of other government officials and civil servants will also be evaluated.
