PM O'Neill does not set his salary conditions : Staff

The Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea  Peter O’Neill, does not set his salary conditions, says PM’s Chief-of-Staff, Edward Mike Jondi.
Mr Jondi made this statement today following a report published in The National Newspaper outlining the salary ranges of all the Ministers and Members of Parliament (MP) of which the Prime Minister tops the list.
The COS stressed that all pay for leaders are set by the Salaries and Remunerations Committee of which the Opposition Leader is a member. It is a bipartisan Committee.

“PM O’Neill does not set his salary conditions.
“The pay for a MP is not only for him/her but is shared with the communities for funeral, school fees, medical and so on, which is expected as part of the leader’s responsibility,” Mr Jondi said.
Mr Jondi said that the information taken from Salaries and Remunerations Commission Determinations of 2015 for Elected Leaders was published for public consumption; however, the paper should consult the Office of the Prime Minister to get a balance view before publishing the article.
