Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka has confirmed Ministers and Assistant Ministers including him have received a further pay cut of 10 percent which is now in effect.
He says this is in addition to the 20 percent pay cut due to COVID.
Rabuka had earlier said with 19 Ministers, the Cabinet is larger than he initially planned, and some Fijians will be concerned about the cost.
He added that he has considered it necessary to appoint 10 Assistant Ministers to provide additional ministerial power needed for the enormous job of putting things right in virtually all aspects of the nation’s life.
