The Party “Dignity and Truth Platform” asks the parliamentary majority to give a second reading to the bill to cap the exaggerated salaries. The draft law reviews the salaries at state institutions and agencies where the pays reach 180,000 lei a month, IPN reports.
“We made request for information to find out the size of salaries of particular managers. We established that the salaries at some of the state institutions are very high even if the institutions are insolvent. If we take the salaries of 100,000 lei at the National Bank of Moldova or at the National Commission for Financial Markets, we see that a person there gets a monthly salary equal to the annual pay of a teacher or doctor,” said former PPPDA MP Vasile Năstase.
The bill author exemplified by saying that a deputy head of the Administration Board of the National Commission for Financial Markets had a salary of 1.2 million lei a year or of 100,000 lei a month.
“Judging by the information we possess and by the discussions we had with people from the system, we see that the new government does not intend to bring things in this sector in order, at least during the first months in office. My fear is that this bill will not be given a second reading. The persons are removed from the system and they will be replaced with other persons who will get the same salaries of 100,000-180,000 lei owing to the performance of the new government,” stated Vasile Năstase.
He called on President Maia Sandu, Speaker Igor Grosu and the MPs to hasten the adoption of the bill after giving it a second reading.
The bill was given a first reading in April. Under it, the monthly salary of the personnel of budget-funded units will not exceed three monthly official salaries. The personnel of units that represent the state in commercial organizations in which this has shareholdings cannot benefit from bonuses for the performed work.
