Leeflang: ‘Save 50 Million from Ministries, not public servants’

Omayra LeeflangWILLEMSTAD - Independent Member of Parliament, Omayra Leeflang has expressed her discontent over the figures of the state budget for 2014. According to Leeflang the cabinet, personnel and general management costs of the ministries transcend the budget by more than eleven million dollars.

"The same government has proposed to reduce the salaries of civil servants by 50 million in four years," according to an outraged Leeflang. "This while the ministries spend more on traveling, propaganda and personnel." The parliamentarian proposes to reduce the budgeted cost of the ministries to the level of budget 2012. "This allows the government to save more than 5 million in spending cuts over five years," according to Leeflang.
