Head of Sociometer sociological center, sociologist Aharon Adibekyan
commented on the proposal to raise state officials’ salaries at a
meeting with reporters today.
“The Prime Minister of Singapore is the highest paid state official
in the world – his salary amounts to USD 1 million. The U.S. President
receives about USD 400,000 in salary. The lowest presidential salaries
are in Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Armenia,” he said.
The sociologist noted that Armenia has no right to economize on
salaries because productivity of work is dependent on salaries.
“Judicial workers are the highest paid in our country – the salary of
Armenian judges is about 2-3 times higher than that of the President,”
