A major grant in the new budget proposal will be to ring fence salaries, with Prime Minister Valdies Dombrovskis stating that additional salary cuts are not on the cards. It states that the upcoming parliamentary election in October will probably show in another weak coalition government, which might be less receptive in limited austerity.
