Lawmakers in the Chamber of Deputies passed a government amendment on Friday which is expected increase pensions for seniors next year by an average of 200 crowns per month. One hundred and twenty-four MPs voted in favour out of 154 present, well above the majority needed. The bill revives automatic pension increases based on one-third of the growth of real-wages and inflation numbers. The move was welcomed by the prime minister who slammed the Civic Democrats and TOP 09 of the former austerity government, saying they had “deprived pensioners of billions of crowns”.
