Co-leader pay

Emile Howe made this Official Information request to Remuneration Authority

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Remuneration Authority should have responded by now (details and exceptions). The requester can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Emile Howe

Dear Remuneration Authority,

This document sets out MPs salaries including the pay for party leaders.

I have two questions.

1. There have been two political parties I recall with co-leaders the Māori Party and Green Party. Could you inform me as to how to pay of co-leaders is determined?

2. If an MP has more than one role, does that MP get the higher of the salaries or some combination of them (i.e. if an MP is both a Minister and a party leader?)

Yours faithfully,
Emile Howe
