Holness announces accountability measures for MPs and cabinet ministers
Prime Minister Andrew Holness has announced a raft of accountability measures to be implemented for members of parliament and cabinet ministers.
This amid a massive salary increase for the political directorate.
Justifying the wage increase, Mr. Holness said measures will be implemented to ensure that politicians are working.
Among these measures are the establishment of job descriptions, the implementation of a code of ethics for Mp’s and ministers, and financial penalties for unexplained absences from parliament and committee meetings.
Mp’s will also be required to provide written accountability reports.
