Total Croatia News

How much do presidents in Croatia and regional countries earn?

Slovenian President Borut Pahor has the highest monthly salary among presidents from the region, while his colleague from Serbia Aleksandar Vučić receives the lowest monthly salary, reports on August 21, 2018.

Slovenian President’s salary on a monthly basis, as stated in his income report, amounts to 3,332 euro. On the other hand, his Serbian colleague Aleksandar Vučić receives three times less. Vučić earns just 1,083 euro, which is the lowest presidential salary in the region.

Croatian President Kolinda Grabar Kitarović and members of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina also earn more than 3,000 euro a month. According to the Croatian Conflict of Interest Prevention Commission, Grabar Kitarović has a net salary of 3,276 euro, while members of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina earn an average of 3,091 euro.

According to the data of the Central Election Commission of Bosnia and Herzegovina, members of the Presidency of the country, Bakir Izetbegović, Dragan Čović and Mladen Ivanić, receive 2,862, 2,874 and 3,536 euro per month respectively.

Kosovo President Hashim Taçi has a monthly salary of 2,873 euro.

Although the Montenegrin Anti-Corruption Agency’s website has not yet published data on Montenegrin President Milo Đukanović’s monthly salary, it is known that his predecessor earned about 2,420 euro per month, so it is assumed that Đukanović’s monthly income is similar.

Less than 2,000 euro per month is earned by Albanian President Ilir Meta, whose salary amounts to 1,425 euro, and Macedonia’s Đordje Ivanov, who earns 1,250 euro.

If the presidential salaries are compared to average wages in the region, it can be seen that they all earn far more than average monthly income in their countries.

At the top of the list are the president of Kosovo and three members of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Monthly salary of Hashim Taci is almost eight times higher than the average salary in Kosovo, while Bakir Izetbegovic, Dragan Čović and Mladen Ivanić receive seven times more than the average salary in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Presidents of Croatia, Macedonia and Slovenia earn three times more than is the average in their countries. Although the salary of Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić is the lowest in the region, he still earns double the average salary in Serbia.

According to official data, the highest average salaries in the region are found in Slovenia and Croatia, and the lowest in Macedonia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
