PNG MPs Salaries 2010 to 2022: How much is your MP Earning In Gross Pay and Allowance?

Here is a compilation of Papua New Guinea MPs Salaries from 2010 to 2022, calculated. We know from past experiences (2011 & 2016) that PNG MPs normally give themselves massive pay increases before the election. Either that or they somehow conjure some excuse to get ridiculous increases.

(In case, you see any witchcraft happening, here is what you should know.) Take a look at how much each of these MPs is receiving and if they are, actually, worth the money!
  • Prime Minister
  • Speaker
  • DPM
  • Opposition Leader
  • Govt Minister
  • Non-govt MPs
  • Governors
  • Assembly Members

Margin of error

Calculated - these salaries are correct to the nearest 100 kinas, which means that the figures may not be the exact received by all the MPS as some MPs received more, others less.

However, we followed the increases in 2010/11 (see the article links below) and are confident that the GROSS Salaries are accurate to the thousands received annually.

PNG MPs' Salaries

There were several adjustments to make this calculation relevant;
  • first, the figures published in the National Newspaper in December 2010 and the PNG Insight's calculations in 2011 based on those figures;
  • second, the exact Ordinary MPs pay published by Madang MP Bryan Krammer on his Facebook wall in 2017 and
  • third, the recent (2019) leaked Salary Advice Slip for PNG Parliament Speaker.

PNG MPs Allowances

We know that the MPs' salaries to allowances ratio is 31.6 to 68.4 split. They earn an unusually ridiculous allowance. This work EXCLUDES overseas/travel allowances.

On overseas travels, the MPs including the PM get over US$500 per day as their travel duty allowance. Read more about it in the Post Courier article here.

All in all, it gives us an accurate representation of the MPs' salaries. SOURCE LINKS
