PNP calls for independent panel to review salary of political directorate
In response to the prime minister’s latest announcements, the Opposition People’s National Party, (PNP), has reiterated that, the salaries for ministers and members of parliament should immediately be withdrawn.
The PNP said an independent panel should be appointed to review the salaries to look at the matter afresh and with objectivity,.
The party said the prime minister’s proposed measures to hold members of parliament accountable fall considerably short of the promises he made during the JLP’s 2016 election campaign for office, as they fail to include the early passage of the impeachment bill, performance evaluation, and term limits.
It added that it continues to lobby for equity in the arrangements for all public sector groups, in particular teachers, the security forces, nurses, doctors, and others.
