Bytyqi: Solution on officials’ wages by end of November


A solution must be found on the officials’ wages by the end of November because the provisions have to be adopted by lawmakers, said Deputy PM for Economic Affairs Fatmir Bytyqi on Monday.
“I believe we will meet again this week so that a proposal is finally put on the table. We must have a solution by the end of November because it will require changes in the law that have to pass in Parliament. The funds released will be transferred to pensioners, students and all those who need it more than some officials,” Deputy PM Bytyqi told reporters.
On the protests announced by a portion of the public sector employees, he said it was not an issue for the Government to raise the wages if services rendered matched the demand and if the increase did not impact others.
“No problem, we can solve anything, as long as it is not done at the expense of others. Let’s not forget that if we increase wages in the health sector and the judiciary, we will have to make cuts in the field of pensions, student meals, student books. It is simple as that,” said Bytyqi.
