LABOUR leader Mahendra Chaudhry says Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama must provide audited accounts of his salary and those of his Cabinet Ministers from April 2010 onwards.
Mr Chaudhry said the audited accounts of the respective salaries should be duly certified by the Auditor-General and the Finance Ministry permanent secretary.
"The Prime Minister's salary should be public information, as they have always been prior to 2010," he said.
"It is absolutely necessary to establish the truth in this matter so that the people can be correctly informed.
"This can only be done if Rear Admiral (Ret) Bainimarama discloses the records regarding his pay package going back to early 2010."
Mr Chaudhry said such disclosures were necessary in the interests of transparency and accountability.
Rear Admiral (Ret) Bainimarama, while officiating at the Rotuma Day celebrations in Rotuma last Tuesday, said recently, one of the political parties was distributing a flyer that he was earning a salary of $1.7million.
"They have done so without any fact, or proof or evidence. I do not earn $1.7m," he said.
Rear Admiral (Ret) Bainimarama said members of the public would get to know his salary after the registration of the proposed Fiji First political organisation.
He said at this time, he would provide the declaration of his assets and liabilities to the Fijian Elections Office.
