Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has announced that MPs’  will not get a pay rise this year.
Experts recently recommended an increase of about three percent for the coming year. Ms Ardern said did not feel right.
Urgent legislation will have to be passed in order for the freeze to take effect before the Remuneration Authority’s increase comes into force.
Last year MPs all received a pay rise of 2.46 percent.
The Remuneration Authority is required by law to make a recommended pay increase which is in line with rises across the public service.
Jacinda Ardern said the move was about the government’s values.
