Political parties want PM and ministers’ pay structure reviewed

THREE political parties agree the pay structure for Fiji’s prime minister and cabinet ministers need to be reviewed.

As we head towards the 2018 General Election, The Fiji Times asked the seven registered political parties contesting the 2018 polls on what would be their policies on the salaries of the prime minister and cabinet ministers?

The National Federation Party, Fiji Labour Party, and the Freedom Alliance believe that the salaries of the prime minister and the cabinet ministers were too high.

HOPE party, Social Democratic Liberal Party, Unity Fiji and the FijiFirst party did not respond to the question when the edition went to press last night. Questions were sent to the parties via electronic mail (email) on Tuesday.
