Opposition LMP: Military, Police Should Have More Staff, Offer Higher Wages
Increasing the personnel of Hungary’s military and law enforcement organisations and raising wages in the sector cannot be delayed, a lawmaker of the opposition LMP party said.

Márta Demeter pointed to a “huge” number of vacant positions due to low wages and employees working extra hours and suffering from an increased workload.

Demeter said that wages for military personnel and law enforcement staff were calculated on a basis of 38,650 forints a month (EUR 119), and proposed that the basic amount should be increased to 60,000 forints.
