New Zealand Members of Parliament have received a pay rise.   The Remuneration Authority has revealed this year’s pay rises for MPs, backdated to July 1.
If current Prime Minister, Bill English, keeps his job he will be in line for a pay rise of more than $8000.
But if Jacinda Ardern manages to wrest it from him, she’ll be in for a boost of around $185,000.
The Prime Minister’s salary will rise from $459,739 to $471,049, while the leader of the Opposition will get $296,007, up from $288,900.
Other party leaders get $179,713, up from $175,398, plus extra money depending on how many MPs they have.
The Deputy Prime Minister is now paid $334,734, and Cabinet members at least $296,007. Ministers outside of Cabinet will get $249,839, and Under-Secretaries $194,374.
MPs who retired or lost their seats at the election will still get paid for another three months’ work.
