MPs' salaries remain unchanged. This has been decided by the temporary committee, which has drafted the rules for the organization and activity of the new 46th Bulgarian parliament. President of the National Assembly Iva Miteva described the request of Maya Manolova and her parliamentary group "Stand up. BG! We are Coming!" for a drastic reduction of MP salaries to one average gross monthly salary of EUR 803 as populism.
All members of the temporary committee abstained in voting on the grounds of a need for broad discussion on the subject, reporter Violeta Ashikova informed.
