Categories: Latin America, Peru, Politics

After the payment raise scandal [1] [es] of Peruvian congressmen, disguised under the rubric of expenses, in Sesión de Control, journalist Martin Hidalgo makes a comparative analysis [2] [es] of the salaries of deputies in Latin America. “At the top of the highest paid legislators are Chileans, who earn a salary of […] about $ 30,602 dollars.” “Until November, Peru was in the sixth [place], but the increase has put the country over Colombia.” Martín concludes: “Disapproval of Congress in Peru remains high, with 63%. Everything is even more worrisome if we consider that, according to Proética, 86% believe that there is corruption in Parliament.”
