saeima sup­ports pro­posal to make salaries of cen­tral, lo­cal govern­ment em­ploy­ees public

The Baltic Times - - OUR COMMENTARY - LETA/TBT Staff

Saeima in the third and fi­nal read­ing to­day adopted leg­isla­tive amend­ments that sup­port the pro­posal of MP Ints Dalderis (Unity) to pub­lish salary data of all cen­tral and lo­cal govern­ment em­ploy­ees on the In­ter­net. Ac­cord­ing to the cur­rent leg­is­la­tion, only salaries of of­fi­cials of state in­sti­tu­tions are public. The new amend­ments will pro­vide that all state in­sti­tu­tions ev­ery month will have to pub­lish salaries and other pay­ments made to all of­fi­cials and em­ploy­ees, stat­ing their name, sur­name, po­si­tion and the sum of the money paid. The Cabi­net of Min­is­ters will de­cide on in­sti­tu­tions, of­fi­cials and em­ploy­ees to which this leg­isla­tive norm will not re­fer due to se­cu­rity rea­sons.
