Prime Minister Andrew Holness has announced that he will forgo his salary increase under the compensation package announced last week by Finance Minister Dr. Nigel Clarke.
He made the announcement during a press conference Monday evening.
The Prime Minister, who spoke for more than an hour, spent most of the time trying to justify the increases granted to members of the political directorate. While the salaries of the Cabinet Ministers will remain, Mr. Holness said he will forgo his increase and continue to receive his current salary, which is set at $9.2 million.
He also gave a list of new measures to be implemented for parliamentarians, including financial penalties for missing parliamentary sittings, a job description and a code of ethics.
Mr. Holness said special courses of training will also be designed for MPs as well as Senators. They will be required to complete a certain number of hours to become certified in the practice of parliamentary affairs, procedures and practices.
