Abinader: “What they have called salary increase have been imprudent actions”

Luis Abinader, President of the Dominican Republic.

An imprudence. This is how President Luis Abinader described the recent salary increases made by some officials of various superintendencies, entities which are regulated by their own laws.

The president said that it is not prudent to talk about raising salaries under the current conditions. “These have been imprudent actions. I want to clarify that the Central Government, where we dispose and order, there has not been any increase. We manage every penny with the utmost transparency,” said the head of state.

However, Abinader pointed out that the autonomy of those entities where salary increases have been registered must be respected.

In this sense, the Dominican government, through the Ministry of Public Administration (MAP) is working to take to the Economic and Social Council (CES) to prevent autonomous entities from increasing their salaries, as has happened in recent weeks with some superintendencies.

The head of state added that the officials who have raised their salaries are outside the control of the public administration since they belong to agencies regulated by their own laws.

“In some of them, I have not even been able to make a change because they have a specific time that is indicated by their law, which were laws that were enacted in previous periods,” said the President.
