Des hausses de salaire de 2 % pour les élus

The”allowance base” of the 125 members of the national Assembly has risen by 2% on 1 April. The “benefits extra”, to which most of them also have the right have also risen by 2 %.

Wednesday morning, figures for the new emoluments of members of parliament in force since the beginning of the month, when they were still not on the website of the national Assembly, as is usually the case. They have, however, been sent to the Sun following a request to this effect. And have emerged in the course of the day on the website of the institution.

The basic award of the quebec mps is increased from 93 $ 827 per year to 95 704 $.

The compensation so-called “additional” is added to the first wage, which is not considered to be “basic” for nothing. They relate to the functions of prime minister, minister, parliamentary assistant, chairman of a commission — in fact, any title that has a member of parliament.
