Romania: European Parliament Salaries

Kosmopolito reports: “On June 7, Romanians will go to the polls to vote for the 33 MEPs who will be representing them in Brussels for the next five years. […] Unlike the current MEPs, who get paid the same amount as the members of Parliament in their respective countries, the MEPs to be elected in June will all receive a basic monthly salary of around 7000 €. While that is not exactly good news for representatives of countries like Italy or Germany, for the Romanians this represents a huge increase from their current salary of around 1200 €. Moreover, this seems to constitute the main reason behind the ‘war of candidates’ that is taking place within the main Romanian parties.”
