OPPOSITION MP CRITICAL OF PLANNED INCREASE OF GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS’ SALARIES

15:05 ~U 23.10.13

Armenian National Congress (ANC) parliamentary group member Nikol
Pashinyan is critical of the bill raising monthly salaries of
government officials.

Armenia’s parliament does not do the people’s will, he said.

“A glaring example is the adoption of the bill abolishing the dole just
an hour ago. And we are now discussing the issue of raising President
Serzh Sargsyan’s salary by 203 percent, Premier Tigran Sargsyan’s
and Parliament Speaker Hovik Abrahamyan’s salary by 218 percent,”
Mr Pashinyan said.

He stressed that the assembly hall was almost empty when the employment
bill was on the parliament agenda. On the other hand, all the MPs
were present when the issue of salaries was on the agenda.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
