Analysis: The Salary of Regional Presidents

The President of Slovenia Borut Pahor has the highest monthly salary among his colleagues from the region, while his colleague from Serbia, Aleksandar Vucic, has the lowest salary.

Monthly earnings of the President of Slovenia, as noted in its property card, amount to a total of 3,332 EUR. On the other side, his counterpart from Serbia, Aleksandar Vucic, earns three times less on a monthly basis. Vucic earns 1,083 EUR, which is the smallest presidential salary in the whole region.

Croatian President Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic, as well as members of the Presidency of BiH, earn more than 3,000 EUR at the monthly level.

According to the data of the Central Election Commission of BiH, members of the Presidency of BiH, Bakir Izetbegovic, Dragan Covic and Mladen Ivanic receive 2.862, 2.874 and 3.536 EUR per month.

The President of Kosovo Hashim Tachi has monthly earnings of 2.873 EUR.

The President of Albania Ilir Meta earns less than 2,000 EUR per month, and his salary amounts to 1,425 EUR and the President of Macedonia Djordje Ivanov earns 1,250 EUR.

If the salaries of heads of these states are compared to average salaries in the region, we easily come to the conclusion that all of them earn much more than the amount of average salary in their countries.

Recorders are the President of Kosovo and three members of the Presidency of BiH. Monthly salary of Hashim Tachi is as far as eight times higher than the average salary in Kosovo, and Bakir Izetbegovic, Dragana Covic and Mladen Ivanic have seven times higher salaries in comparison to the average salary in BiH.
