The Parliament on Thursday adopted conclusively amendments to the the Interior Ministry Act, which introduce a mechanism for determining salaries for the lowest positions in the Interior Ministry and will come into force on 1 January 2025.

The base for determining the amount of the basic monthly salary of civil servants in the Ministry of Interior for the lowest position is the average monthly wage in Bulgaria during the second quarter of the previous year, as reported by the National Statistical Institute (NSI). The monthly wage is increased by a coefficient compared to the base as follows: for the lowest executive position - not less than 1.2; and for the lowest junior executive position - not less than 1.0, the MPs decided.

A proposal by Mladen Marinov MP (GERB-UDF), made in the plenary, further increased the coefficients which were initially set to be 1.0 and 0.8, respectively.

The MPs agreed that the basis for determining the stipend of cadets at the Interior Ministry's Academy should equal to 50 % of the monthly salary of trainees appointed to an executive post.

The possibility of carrying out fire-fighting and rescue activities in teams of two officers in settlements with a population of less than 5,000 was also abolished. Fire and rescue services will work in teams of at least three officers.

On the proposal of Yordan Tsonev (MRF), the adopted texts concerning salaries and wages will enter into force on January 1, 2025.
