Picture Taken from Al-Akhbar
President of the Republic: LL225,000,000 ($150,000)
Parliament Speaker and Prime Minister: LL212,844,000 million ($141,896)
Minister: LL212,844,000 ($103,496)
Member of Parliament: LL153,000,000 ($102,000)
Adding all the “extra benefits”, the total paid for officials to do their work is around LL41.84 billion ($28 million) a year.
And they still want a raise on top of all that!

Well actually for a minister that kind of salary is understandable. You see for someone to become a minister he has to abandon his previous job for 4 years (or just 1 year seeing how fast governments in Lebanon are toppled and changed), which means he is likely to lose his job permanently and never get it back after his ministrial term expires. And since he’ll probably just be minister for 1 year, so it’s $103,496 for life. So in fact being a minister is not a very good investment financially.
As for the rest of the officials, they should be paid no more than a garbage man.
Add to that invoice-free mobile lineZZZZZ :S
Best crisis management move, from the best government who rewarded itself for sending the country 20 years backward.
Also, “former MPs receive lifelong compensation and benefits. When they die, their salaries go to their families”
Many one have few salary because they hold more than one job , I mean minister and in the same time parliament member and more
