"Several parties want to stop the possibility for mps to continue to get out fees, despite the fact that they are no longer involved in the work, reports the Echo in the Radio."
"– There is no other place in the labour market, where one can say that right now I can't do my work, I stay at home, but I still want to be paid, " says Christer Nylander, the group leader for the Liberals, to the radio."
"the Issue has come to the fore since the former liberal mep Emma Carlsson Löfdahl taken time out from parliament. After the high-profile lägenhetsaffären, she left the party and became a maverick, but has said that she retains her riksdagsplats in anticipation of the prosecutor's decision and continues to receive compensation."
"today, this is possible without breaking any of the rules, which Nylander think is unreasonable."
" I think we must have a clear legal framework that says that if you can't perform your job as an mp, then you should not have a fee during the period."
"Even the Centre party and The sweden democrats are open for discussions in the same direction."
