The government have proposed for the National Deputies’ emoluments to be increased from US$21,000 to as much US$33,000 this year.

This would to in addition to the hefty US$400,000 that each MP will receive in reception and installation expenses.

The Congolese economy is currently at its worst in country’s history with a US$1 selling at FCA2830, in the local currency in what is its highest rate ever.
