12 out of 18 ministries in Greece have sent to the parliament the data on the salaries of their employees, following the request of a deputy of New Democracy, who had asked the ministries to provide information on the average salary of each category of their staff and in the state enterprises operating under the control of each ministry.

The Ministries of Finance, Health, Culture and Sports have not submitted the requested data whereas others have preferred to send the total amount of salaries instead of the amount of the average monthly salary. One of them is the Ministry of Justice which has not announced the salaries received by 3,737 judges and magistrates. The Ministry of Public Order and Citizen Protection has submitted general data as well.
