Senator Aleksandrov: MP must earn much more than doctor and teacher
Earlier it transpired that the deputies of the Legislative Assembly of the Krasnoyarsk Territory passed a law on raising their own salary from 100 to 200 thousand rubles (from $1.7 to 3.4 thousand).
First Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Constitutional Legislation and State Building Aleksey Aleksandrov believes that "a deputy must certainly earn much more than a teacher, a doctor or any other professions." Aleksandrov said this when commenting on reports that the Krasnoyarsk deputies doubled their salaries, Regions.ru reports.
The deputy chairman of the Committee of the Federation Council explains that the work of the deputies is "more responsible and demands higher qualification." "Wellbeing of a doctor, teacher, as well as a patient and student depends on the results of his (deputy’s - Ed.) work," Aleksandrov said.
"It is a whole policy to decide how much to whom. In general, it's hard to count other people's money and reason on this issue. Favorite topic these days is why teachers, doctors are paid so little, 3-4 times less than deputies? Well, let’s not pay the deputies at all! Why would a deputy have a car? Let him walk. Why does a deputy have a workplace? Let him write on a stump like Lenin did. By the way, Lenin wrote his famous treatise 'The State and Revolution', which subsequently shook the state foundations of Russia, in his hut," the deputy head said.
Earlier it became known that the deputies of the Legislative Assembly of the Krasnoyarsk Territory intended to raise their salaries twofold; amendments to the draft law were made just before the session. It was specified that the total amount on average should be increased from 100 to 200 thousand rubles. As noted by RIA Novosti, the initiator of the increase in salaries was a group of deputies from United Russia. The deputies have already adopted the corresponding draft, the document was signed by the head of the region.The press service of the governor of the Krasnoyarsk Territory told Novaya Gazeta that this law "only implies the possibility" of increasing wages and depends on budget adjustments that occur in the spring or autumn.
