"The ministers have refused their wage bonuses. The issue of incentive payments in political posts will be considered on the basis of the yearly work. And we will decide through public talk whether the ministers and politicians deserve bonuses," he said at a briefing following the meeting, according to the government portal.

Shmyhal said the ministers would receive salaries not exceeding five average wages and the statutory bonuses.

"We have also decided that the intensity allowance may not exceed 30%," he added.
