The measure announced by Carlos Alvarado also includes the executive presidents of the institutions; in this case, the deductions will go to the National Emergency Commission (CNE).
The reduction of the hierarchies will be made official by means of a letter to the CNE in which each one expresses their willingness to donate the equivalent of 15% of their working hours from their salary, in order to contribute to the care of the health emergency. In this way, this Administration reiterates its unswerving commitment to contribute to the state of emergency through its management and specific actions.
In addition to making important cuts to the budget, the Executive Power proposed a bill (file number 22,081) to temporarily reduce 15% of the working hours of all public officials with a salary greater than 1,500,000 colones.
The contribution of vice presidents and ministers will be used to attend to the emergency.
