for the phrase:
The PSD leader stated that the government wanted, from Portuguese taxation, to “pay more than 300,000 euros to Dr. Pedro Adao e Silva to organize or help organize the celebrations” of the fiftieth anniversary of 25 April. “I consider this quite scandalous, and I think one can read that he paid for services rendered to the Socialist Party with Portuguese taxes,” he charged. On the other hand, Rui Rio referred to the placement of Socialist Party deputy Anna Paola Vitorino to head the Mobility and Transport Authority (AMT) “with a higher salary”.
The Ministry of Infrastructure and Housing has submitted to the opinion and evaluation of the Commission for Recruitment and Selection for Public Administration (CRESAP) the name of Anna Paola Vitorino for the presidency of the AMT, of which he currently chairs Joao Fernando Amaral Carvalho. A government source confirmed to PÚBLICO that it “will subsequently be submitted to a reasoned opinion by the Assembly of the Republic under the provisions of No. 3 of Article 17 of the Regulatory Entities Framework Act.”
On Tuesday, the head of the Public Security Directorate asked the Prime Minister for clarifications on options Pedro Adam e Silva To the Executive Commissioner for the 50th Anniversary of April 25 and Anna Paola Vitorino for AMT. Roy Rio criticized the appointment of both, noting “the capacity of the engineer Ana Paola Vitorino” to fill the position in question, but he believes that there are “in the ten million Portuguese, man or woman, many other persons capable of performing the job”. The Socialist Party deputy was already Minister of the Sea in Antonio Costa’s previous government and before that she was Minister of State for Transport between 2005 and 2009.
“So the disagreement here is the minister [Pedro Nuno Santos] Appoints the wife of a colleague in the government [Eduardo Cabrita]And I defended it, but what I think is even worse: he appoints a deputy to the Socialist Party. Rio also reported that Ana Paola Vitorino will receive a “bigger salary” from Adao e Silva. Pedro Nono Santos, Minister of Infrastructure and Housing, defended that Ana Paola Vitorino “is one of the most qualified people in our country in the region [dos transportes] And those who know it know that he has a profile that guarantees independence from the regulated.”
In accordance with the Public Administration Wages Law, the position that Pedro Adao e Silva will hold as Director of the Executive Committee for the Commemoration of the 25 April Revolution, which will last until the end of 2026, is entitled to Monthly wages 3745.26 €Plus €780.36 for representation expenses.
According to the data published in Location From AMT itself, President A . is entitled A basic monthly wage of €12,000, plus €4,800 of representation expensesThe value determined by the Remuneration Committee (CV). However, there has been an update of these salaries, which have been reduced, PÚBLICO confirmed to AMT source. The salary, then, was €8,250 for all CA members, regardless of position. In the case of the president, it can be up to 40% of this amount in allowances.
The CV unanimously decided to set the monthly salary at €12,000, €10,800 and €9600 for the Chairman, Vice-President and Members, respectively, and an allowance for representation expenses at 40% of the relevant monthly salary, making the AMT Board of Directors at a slightly lower level of entitlement than their counterparts from more coherent organizational entities, “as read in the document”Transportation and Transportation Authority Remuneration Committee Decision No. 1/2015posted no Location this entity.
It is true that the salary of Representative Anna Paola Vitorino (if the nomination is approved) will, in fact, be higher than that of Pedro Adao e Silva. Roy Rio’s statement is correct.
