“They remain as they have been prescribed by the Revenue Mobilization and Fiscal Commission under a law passed in 2008.

“The President and the Vice President have voluntarily offered a 50 percent salary cut. This is voluntary and does not apply to Ministers and other political appointees. Reports to the effect that the President has imposed an austere package on the ministers are unknown to us.
