Roll back increases for all parliamentarians! – Advocates Network
The Advocates Network is doubling down on its call for the government to roll back the salary increases for all parliamentarians.
This, following an announcement from Prime Minister Andrew Holness that he has directed the Transformation Implementation Unit, to remove his compensation from the new salary scale.
The Prime Minister indicated that the other members of the political directorate will receive increased salaries. A decision, which he says, he supports.
Responding to Mr. Holness’ statement, co-chair of the Advocates Network, Professor Rosalea Hamilton said if the Prime Minister can roll back his salary, the same should be done for the others.
She said the salary increases for the political directorate should be no more than 20%, putting it in line with other public sector workers.
As it regards the accountability framework to be put in place, Professor Hamilton called for evidence of this to be made available to the people.
