Macedonian MPs are paid one of the lowers monthly salaries.

Macedonian MPs are paid one of the lowers monthly salaries (minimum 1,000 euros) in comparison with their counterparts from the region and the EU. However, they are entitled to a number of privileges that the best well-paid legislators are to be envious of. For instance, Macedonian MPs unlike their counterparts elsewhere are not subject to any sanctions and their only concern is being regular at parliamentary sessions. They have a right to a special pension of some 45,000 denars and in order to become eligible for it they should serve as MPs for at least two years. Their immunity is also a special right considering they cannot be held accountable for what they say or how they vote in Parliament.
