Government ministers, MPs get 2.4% pay raises

Prime Minister Erna Solberg will be getting a pay raise of NOK 37,000 (USD 4,500) this year, bringing her new salary up to NOK 1,593,242 (USD 192,000). Both she, her fellow ministers and Members of Parliament (MPs) will be getting the same pay hikes agreed in industrial labour negotiations earlier this year, 2.4 percent.

Newssite Nettavisen reported that the parliamentary pay commission that proposes elected officials’ salary levels in Norway was also recommending that other ministers in Solberg’s Conservatives-led government receive annual pay of NOK 1,294,216, a raise of NOK 30,176.

Members of Parliament can expect to receive NOK 906,928, up from 885,491.
