ArmInfo. Speaker of the National Assembly of Armenia Ararat Mirzoyan on his Facebook page said that at his suggestion, with the consent of the MPs, all the MPs' wage bonuses for March will be transferred to the treasury account, open to assist in the fight against coronavirus.
Mirzoyan, in particular, noted: "I want to thank the MPs from the three parliamentary factions, as well as the independent MPs for accepting my proposal. I was also pleased to know that some MPs have already transferred money to this account on their own initiative."
It should be noted that the Ministry of Healthcare has opened a special account to support doctors struggling with coronaviros and to purchase special equipment. The proceeds will be used to encourage medical personnel, to purchase medical equipment, and to improve the capabilities of medical centers.
To recall, President of Armenia Armen Sarkissian, head of the Constitutional Court Hrayr Tovmyasyan, Minister of Healthcare Arsen Torosyan and others have already transferred their monthly salary to this account.
