Azerbaijan's Milli Majlis unveils salaries of MPs
- 03 February 2021
The information which is published in a number of social networks under the heading "New Salary List of Milli Mejlis Deputies" do not reflect reality, the press service of Milli Mejlis told APA.
Despite the fact that some time ago the relevant subdivision of the Office of the Parliament officially informed the public about the monthly official salaries of Milli Mejlis deputies, the purpose of such false statements by some biased circles is to confuse the public opinion and undermine the authority of Milli. Mejlis.
"Once again, we note that Article 21 of the Law "On the Status of a Deputy of the Milli Mejlis" states that the chairman of the Milli Mejlis receives a monthly salary of 2,475 manats. The First Deputy Chairman of the Milli Mejlis - 90 percent of this amount (2,227.5 manats) , Deputy Chairman of the Milli Mejlis - 85 percent (2,103.75 manats), Chairman of the Milli Mejlis Committee and Commission - 80 percent (1,980 manats), Deputy Chairman of the Milli Mejlis Committee and Commission - 75 percent (1 856.25 manats), and a deputy of the Milli Mejlis receives a monthly salary in the amount of 70 percent of the monthly salary of the chairman of the Milli Mejlis (1,732.5 manats).
In addition, the chairman of the Milli Mejlis, his first deputy and deputies, chairmen of committees and commissions of the Milli Mejlis and their deputies, deputies of the Milli Mejlis receive monthly cash security exempt from taxes in the amount of 50 percent of the official salary to reimburse the expenses associated with the exercise of parliamentary powers," said the press service.
