Over a Third of Former MPs Seek Unemployment Benefit


In accordance with the deputies act, the right to the monthly compensation can be extended for a maximum of six months if a deputy meets the conditions for retirement.

Former deputies with multiple terms have the right to an additional three months for each term served before the last one, but not more than six additional months in total on top of the first six.

Deputies whose terms were terminated within six months after the confirmation of their terms are not eligible for unemployment compensation.

According to the payroll of the National Assembly for July, the average pay of the deputies who will exercise the right to compensation was slightly more than EUR 4,000. This means that they will be receiving a monthly compensation of EUR 3,200 on average.

On the other hand, eight deputies elected in the 13 July general elections have asked for permission to continue to perform part-time work outside the National Assembly. The law allows MPs to work for a maximum of 8 hours per week.
