MPs abolish 1990 law on MP renumeration

The People’s Majlis today passed an amendment bill submitted on behalf of the government to abolish an outdated 1990 law governing renumeration for MPs of the People’s Majlis and Special Majlis.

The bill was approved with unanimous consent of 70 MPs at today’s sitting of parliament following review by the economic affairs committee.

The Special Majlis was a plenary assembly last convened in June 2004 to revise the constitution. Article 102 of the constitution meanwhile stipulates that salaries and allowances of People’s Majlis MPs will be determined by the parliament.
