The former Spanish Minister for Health, Ana Mato , who tendered her resignation from government in November, facing corruption charges in the infamous Gürtel case, has this week got a new job and a higher salary.
Having received the votes of 24 members of her political party, the Partido Popular, Mato has been voted into the post of Vice President of the Committee on International Cooperation. The opposition members all either voted against or abstained, on account of the reasons for her resignation.
Since the proposal of the PP was made public, several opposition spokespeople publicly expressed their dissatisfaction of the PP´s decision to award the former minister with this institutional position emphasizing that Mato resigned after Judge Pablo Ruz stated that evidence shows how she personally benefited from her ex-husband’s alleged illegitimate business activities.
Her resignation is on account that she doesn´t want to further damage the public´s opinion of the ruling Partido Popular government, rocked with scandal after scandal during their current administration.
As a result of this new appointment, in addition to still receiving her monthly salary as a member of the diputacion, Mato will also receive an additional 1,000 euro per month, and will now be paid a total of 4,730.91 euro per month, 56,770.92 euro per year.
As reported earlier this month in The Leader, the latest official figures show that the minimum wage in Spain during 2013 was 9,034 euro which, according to tax office statistics, equates to just 645 euro per month when spread over 14 payments.
