The Slovak government plans to save money by freezing the salaries of state representatives; this proposal has met with resistance from judges, the Hospodárske noviny daily wrote in its Tuesday, November 13, issue.

The Association of Judges in Slovakia protests the salary freeze. Judges’ salaries were supposed to increase by €230 next year. The proposal to stop the current annual valorisation of judges' salaries at 6.2 percent was announced by Prime Minister Robert Fico, who wants to prepare a constitutional law that would require the support of 90 MPs. Part of the opposition says it will support such a draft amendment. The average monthly salary of judges currently stands at €3,432 and it had been set to be increased to €3,662 by next year.
