Top public officials will see their salaries and lump-sum compensation frozen at this year’s level next year, according to an amendment to measures approved by the government November 6.


The salaries of the president, the prime minister and his ministers, legislators, along with the senior management of the Supreme Audit Office (NKÚ) and the general prosecutor will remain at the level set in 2011, in line with general austerity measures, the TASR newswire wrote. The salaries of judges of the Constitutional Court, the Supreme Court and the Specialised Criminal Court and those of regular judges will remain at the level set in 2012. The remuneration of MPs’ assistants and the amount of expenditures on a lawmaker’s office will stay at the 2011 level.

The ombudsman will receive a salary and lump-sum compensation, along with compensation for other expenditures at the volume set in 2011. The Finance Ministry estimates that this will save €8.2 million. These savings have already been factored into the recently approved 2014-16 state budget. The legislation is now due to be debated in parliament via fast-tracked proceedings.
